Iranian official hints at new US prisoner exchange

TEHRAN- Iran’s judiciary spokesman has raised the possibility of a prisoner exchange involving two US-Iranian citizens and an Iranian consultant to the UN arrested in the United States. The semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi as saying Sunday that he has “heard words from here and there though nothing has been officially conveyed to the judiciary.” Ejehi was asked about a possible exchange involving Siamak Namazi, jailed in Iran for “cooperation with the hostile government of the United States.” His father, Baquer, is jailed on unannounced charges.
