TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A defense attorney says Iran has set bail of $500,000 each for two American men arrested more than two years ago and convicted on spy-related charges.

Lawyer Masoud Shafiei says the court would free Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal after payment of the bail.

Shafiei says he informed the Swiss Embassy on Tuesday of the decision. The Swiss represent U.S. interests in Iran.

The bail amount is the same set last year for the release of a third American, Sarah Shourd, who was arrested with Bauer and Fattal along the Iran-Iraq border in July 2009.
