Iran rejects abuse claim by relatives of US hikers

Tehran on Friday rejected comments made by the mothers of two US hikers held in Iran for nearly two years who said their sons were abused, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"The comments made about the conditions of the two imprisoned Americans are rejected," said a statement issued by Iran's mission at the United Nations reported by IRNA.

The mothers of US hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal have urged the United Nations to investigate what they they described as psychological torture, physical abuse and sexual harassment of their sons.
