After 26 months, Americans Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal were released from Tehran’s Evian prison today, ushered aboard a plane owned by the Sultan of Oman and flown back to Oman to reunite with family. A video shows that Sarah Shourd, engaged to Bauer, was released from the same prison one year ago under $500,000 ranson – and was at the reunion today. It is believed that Oman paid the ransom for all three. See the video below.
