Iran has announced it will release one of three American hikers who have been detained for more than a year on spying charges.

Reporters were told by an official with the Ministry of Islamic Guidance and Culture to gather in a northern Tehran hotel on Saturday for a meeting. The hikers’ lawyer, Massoud Shaffie, said it is widely expected that Sarah Shourd, the only woman among the three, will be released.

Shourd, 32, has been held alone in a cell and is said to have been ill and depressed. She is engaged to Shane Bauer, 27, who together with the other member of their group, Joshua Fattal, 27, is held in another cell.
