Sarah Shourd Freed By Iran On $500,000 Bail
Sarah Shourd, one of three American hostages held by Iran, was released to her attorney, after Switzerland, which represents U.S. interests in Iran, posted $500,000 bail.
Iran’s arbitrary handling of the cases of both its nationals and foreigners has resulted in much of the world believing they are pawns in the dispute over Tehran’s development of nuclear weapons.
Shourd is a resident of Berkeley, Calif. The other two Americans are Shane Michael Bauer, 27, and Joshua Felix Fatal, also 27. The three were arrested 14 months ago.
Bauer is Shourd’s fiance.Click here for reuse options!
