So, remember those three Berkeley alumni who went hiking in Iraq quite awhile back, and before anyone quite knew what was happening they had been arrested and were being accused of espionage by the Iranian government [1]?

Well, they’ve been in jail in Iran ever since (except for Sarah Shourd, who was released in September after finding a lump in her breast) and the two men, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, entered not guilty pleas on Sunday.

Shourd was summoned back for the proceeding [2], but was not present on Sunday.

Here’s hoping for the best, and a safe return home, for all three of them.
