September 21, 2011 Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal have been held since July 2009. Along with a third American, who was released last year, they were convicted of spying. The three say they were hiking along the Iraq-Iran border and got lost.
September 10, 2010 Iran postponed the release of Sarah Shourd, one of three U.S. hikers detained for more than a year. A Teheran prosecutor said more legal steps were needed before she could be released.
