BERLIN (AP) – Germany’s foreign minister says an embassy official has been granted access to two Germans arrested in Iran earlier this month while reportedly trying to interview the son of a woman sentenced to death by stoning.

Minister Guido Westerwelle said the official was able to visit the two Germans in the northwestern city of Tabriz and found them to be “doing well, considering the circumstances.”

He says the visit was granted after “very intensive and very difficult talks.”

Westerwelle says he again spoke to his Iranian counterpart, Manouchehr Mottaki, this week but declined to give further details of efforts to get the two Germans released.

Iran’s general prosecutor has said the two admitted breaking the law by entering the country without the proper visas.
