MUSCAT, Oman (AP) - Two Americans released from an Iranian prison are spending their first full day of freedom in seclusion with their families, after more than two years in custody accused as spies.
Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer arrived Wednesday in Oman under a $1 million bail deal and were embraced by relatives. Also on hand was Sarah Shourd, who was freed by Iran last year.
The three were detained in July 2009 along the Iran-Iraq border.
They claim they were only hiking in Iraq's relatively peaceful Kurdish region. Last month, Fattal and Bauer were sentenced to eight years in prison.
