Moms of 3 Americans jailed in Iran get visas

The mothers of Josh Fattal, Sarah Shourd, and Shane Bauer had been trying for months to get the visas so they could visit their children.

The three friends were hiking in Iraq back in July when they claim they crossed into Iran accidentally.

They're accused of espionage.

Iran announced this week the mothers will be able to visit their children on humanitarian grounds.
