TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iran is going to release the two American nationals on bail.

The lawyer of the three Americans Masoud Shafiei said Tuesday each of his clients would be released on $500,000 bail.

"I found out that Branch 36 of the appeal court has changed arrest verdict of Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal to bail as I came there," he told ISNA.

He said he has informed families of the Americans and Swiss embassy in Tehran of the issue and that his clients would be released as soon as they submit the bail.

The two Americans, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, both 29, were arrested along with another American while they entered into Iranian territory illegally two years ago.

In August, they were sentenced to eight years in prison. The other American, Sarah Shroud, was released due to health conditions in September 2010 on $500,000.
