Sydney (AFP) The Australian government has called on Tehran to "humanize" three Australian citizens arrested in Iran. Foreign Minister Marise Payne said Thursday she had talked with her Iranian colleague, Jawad Sarif, on several occasions about the cases. The government is trying to ensure that the prisoners are treated "fairly, humane and in accordance with international law". There is no reason to suppose that these are politically motivated arrests.
