Two American hikers who wandered over the Iranian border two years ago have been sentenced to another 8 years in jail for spying, an Iranian news channel says.The Americans, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, say they crossed the border inadvertently when a soldier waved at them to approach.
Iran has never offered any evidence that they were “spying,” but they’ve been held in a Tehran jail for the past two years.
A third American with them, Sarah Shourd, was released on $500,000 bail last September.
This should certainly help US-Iran relations.
