Freed Hikers Arrive in Oman [VIDEO]
MUSCAT, Oman (AP) – Two Americans released from jail in Iran have landed in the Gulf state of Oman.
AP reporters saw the arrival of the plane carrying Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, who were released Wednesday from a Tehran prison after a $1 million bail was posted. They were imprisoned on charges of spying for more than two years.
Their families and Sarah Shourd, who was arrested with the two men but was released earlier, were in Oman to meet them.
Bauer attended school in Onamia from 7th through 10th grade. His mother, Cindy Hickey, lives in Pine City.
