Freedom Soon For U.S. Hikers In Iran

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - The two American hikers held in Iran are being handed over to Swiss diplomats.

Because a $1 million bail-for-release deal was approved by the courts Wednesday, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal will avoid having to serve the rest of an eight year prison sentence after being
convicted of spying last month.

They were arrested along the Iran-Iraq border in July 2009.
