Interview with Senator Amy Klobuchar (Audio)

Saturday, May 21st, 2011 at 10:13 am

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar was in Pine City on Friday morning to visit with Cindy Hickey and to show support for Hickey. Hickey is the mother of Shane Bauer, one of the two American hikers who have been imprisoned in Iran since July 2009.

Hickey and Laura Fattal, the mother of the other hiker, Josh Fattel, started a hunger strike as a show of solidarity with their sons. Both mothers believe that their sons are fasting, so they are doing the same. The trial for their sons was scheduled for May 11, but it was delayed without explanation.

After visiting with Hickey, Klobuchar stopped by the elementary school for Field Day. Our own Jesse Logan had a chance to interview with Sen. Klobuchar and get some of her thoughts on the situation over in Iran.
