OB-PU801_iranhi_G_20110925173031Today, more than two years after their detainment and one year after their companion, Sarah Shourd, was released, Berkeley grads Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer boarded a plane with their families and arrived in New York City.

The three were accused of espionage and both Fattal and Bauer were sentenced to eight years by the Iranian government, but there has been no evidence released and it has been maintained that the hikers unintentionally crossed the border from Kurdistan into Iran.

Last Wednesday they were released from Teheran’s Evin Prison to Oman, who paid for their bail.

After a long and arduous struggle, they are home at last.
