Shourd To Be Released
The lawyer for detained American hiker Sarah Shourd is now telling the Associated Press that his client’s release from an Iranian jail is immanent.
Shourd is apparently still in the prison, but is only finalizing details on the release and going through what the lawyer calls “formalities inside the prison.”
Shourd’s two friends, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal have had their detentions extended for two more months according to Iran’s Judiciary.
The three hikers were detained by the Iranian government back on July 31, 2009.
