Hikers Race to Families After Two Years Held in Iran
They're not home yet, but greeting family members in Oman they must have felt it.
The hikers' family members, along with Sarah Shourd, were already in Oman to greet them. Shourd was arrested along with Bauer and Fattal but was released in a similar bail deal last year. She and Bauer becamed engaged during their prison term.
The release came just minutes before President Barack Obama addressed the U.N. General Assembly. There was no direct evidence that Iran timed the American's freedom to overshadow Mr. Obama's speech, but Iran has conducted international political stagecraft in the past.
