"Tehran's chief prosecutor confirms that two American men arrested more than two years ago while hiking along the Iraq-Iran border have been sentenced to 8 years in prison on charges that include espionage. ... Iranian state TV has reported that the two were sentenced to three years for illegal entry into Iran and five years for spying for the United States. They deny the charges, saying they were only hiking near the ill-defined border." (08/21/11)
