The lawyer of an American woman detained in Iran says she has been released from custody but is still in the prison finalizing details.
The lawyer, Masoud Shafiei, says Sarah Shourd “has been released and she has to go through the formalities inside the prison.”
Iran’s judiciary, meanwhile, says the detention of Shourd’s two American friends, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, has been extended for two more months.
Iran’s English—language Press TV reported that Ms. Shourd was released on Tuesday on a bail of $500,000 but gave no more details.
The three Americans were detained along the Iran—Iraq border on July 31, 2009 and accused of illegally crossing the border and spying.
