Iran May Release Jailed Hikers

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is currently in talks with the U.S. about a possible release of three American hikers who have been jailed since July 2009 for illegally entering into the country from Iraq. The hikers, who were traveling in Iraq's northern Kurdistan region, have been accused of spying and had been set to be tried in Iranian courts. Ahmadinejad is seeking an exchange of Iranian prisoners being held without charges in U.S. prisons, though he did not specify which prisoners he wanted freed.
