U.S. Woman Freed by Iran to Be Reunited With Mother After Leaving Country

U.S. citizen Sarah Shourd, released today after more than a year in detention in Iran on spying charges, was in good spirits and planning to be reunited with her mother outside the country, Shourd’s lawyer said.
“She was smiling and said that she was going to meet her mother,” the lawyer, Masoud Shafiei, said in a telephone interview from Tehran. Shourd soon left for Oman, Agence France- Presse said, citing the Swiss ambassador to Iran, whose embassy in the capital handles U.S. interests.
Prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi said Sept. 12 that Iran was ready to free Shourd on bail of $500,000. Shafiei said he saw a document stating that the bail had been paid by Shourd’s family, and that he was unable to give further details.
