美通过瑞士敦促伊透露被押旅游者信息 US, Swiss Press Iran for Information About Detained Hikers

03 August, 2009

美国国务院说,它正通过瑞士驻德黑兰大使馆获取有关旅游者的消息。三名美国旅游者星期五因未经允许从伊拉克进入伊朗而被关押。

伊朗国家媒体(星期日)援引伊朗议会国家安全和外交政策委员会主席的话说,“这个案子正在按常规办法处理。”他没有提供关于被关押者的更多信息。

美国和伊朗没有外交关系。其中一名被关押的美国人的家人星期天告诉记者说他们很关心三人的健康。

伊拉克北部库尔德地区的安全首脑说,这三人当时住在伊拉克和伊朗交界处的一个山区渡假地。他们到边境附近去看一个瀑布。但是很明显他们闯入了相邻的伊朗。伊朗士兵包围并逮捕了他们。

The U.S. State Department says it is working through the Swiss embassy in Tehran to obtain information about three American tourists who were detained Friday on charges of entering Iran from Iraq without permission.

Iranian state-run media (Sunday) quoted the head of the Iranian Parliament's foreign policy committee (Alaeddin Boroujerdi) as saying "the case is currently on its natural course." He did not provide any further information about the detainees.

The United States and Iran do not have diplomatic ties. Family members of one of the detained Americans (Josh Fattal) told reporters Sunday they are concerned for the trio's well-being.

The head of security in northern Iraq's Kurdish region (Hakem Qadir) said the three had been staying at a mountain resort near the Iraq-Iran border. He said they went to see a waterfall near the border, but apparently ventured into neighboring Iran, where they were surrounded by Iranian soldiers and arrested.
