Iran's state-run Press TV says three Americans jailed in Iran are meeting with their mothers.
Press TV broadcast footage of Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal hugging and kissing their mothers, who wore long black headscarves and held bouquets of flowers.
The trio's mothers arrived in Tehran a day earlier to visit their children and try to secure their release.
Shourd, Bauer and Fattal were arrested along the Iraqi border last July, and Iran has accused them of spying. Their relatives reject the accusation and say they were hiking in Iraq's scenic north.
They had been warned against hiking in the region, but ignored the warnings.
