The mother of one of three American hikers held in Iran says the families have gotten visas to visit the hikers.

Nora Shourd told The Associated Press Wednesday that the family of 27-year-old Josh Fattal picked up the travel documents in Washington, D.C.

Shourd's daughter, Sarah, has been held with Fattal and Shane Bauer since the three were arrested along the Iraqi border in July.

Nora Shourd says the families don't know yet when they'll leave or how long the visit will last.

Iran's foreign minister said on state television this week that the Iranian government has ordered visas to be issued on humanitarian grounds.

Iran has accused the three friends of spying. Their families and the U.S. government have denied the spying accusations and called for their release.
