American Hiker Released From Iranian Prison

| 1 Comment

American hiker and teacher, Sarah Shroud, was released after a year in an Iranian prison, but urges the Iranian government to release her two comrades as well.

Shroud, 32, and her hiking partners, Shane Bauer, and Josh Fattal, both 28, were arrested 410 days ago for illegally crossing the Iran border while hiking in Iraq, according to the New York Times.

Shroud is happy to be back in the United States, but as reported by CNN, she is only "one-third free", as her companions are still being held in a prison in Tehran.

The Iranian government is calling her release a "huge humanitarian gesture", according to The New York Times, and is now asking for the release of eight Iranian citizens, who are currently being held in the U.S.
