Mother of Detained Hiker Campaigns for Daughter's Freedom

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Three American hikers, Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal were arrested on the Iranian border a year ago and were accused of espionage. No charges have been brought against the hikers and there has been little contact with them. The mother of Sarah, Nora Shourd says that she's only spoken to her daughter twice since the arrest. She joins us from London, where she's working to raise public awareness of the incident "so people will know the story and understand how unfair and illegal it is."
