Sarah Shourd $500,000 Bail Set

Sarah Shourd met for the first time with an attorney in Iran where she is held on charges of spying. Her bail is set at $500,000. Last week it was announced that Shourd would be released on September 11th, then that information changed to not being released at all, and today we hear that a $500,000.00 bail is required to bring her home. According to statements out of Iran, Shourd is being released due to a cancer risk. According to this source, she has a lump in her breast and a “pre-condition related to cancer.” Sarah, along with Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal have been held in Evin prison in Tehran for over 13 months.

UPDATE 9-14-11: Today there are reports that the Sultanate of Oman has sent an aircraft for Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, and will pay the $500,000 bail for each man, as they did for Sarah Shourd. I’ll have more as details are available. Sarah Shourd was released from Iran on year ago today.
