Iran's Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi has suggested that it's time for Washington to propose a prisoner swap if it wants to secure the release of three U.S. citizens who were arrested in July 2009 after straying across the Iraq-Iran boder.

Moslehi said in comments to reporters on May 23 that he has no doubts that the three -- Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, both 27 years old, and 31-year-old Sarah Shroud -- are spies.

"Their status as spies is explicit and certain," Moslehi said, suggesting that a "gesture" on the part of Washington is in order.
