Plea for release of Iran detainees


The mothers of three American hikers arrested in Iran have made an appeal for their release.

The hikers crossed into Iran in August from the Kurdish region of neighbouring Iraq and were detained on suspicion of spying.

Since then, their families haven't been able to speak to them.

Anthony Weller reports.
