Iran to try 3 Americans who crossed border

Iran has said they were spying. Now the foreign minister says the three Americans jailed since July will be tried, though he's not saying on what charges.

Relatives and the U.S. government say the three were innocently hiking in northern Iraq and accidentally crossed into Iran.

The foreign minister's comments were the first clear indication that Iran plans to put them on trial. He said at a news conference that the Americans had "suspicious aims."
