flamingoloveSurely you’ve already heard about the three Berkeley alumni who were arrested last year after crossing the Iraq-Iran border.

Well, we at the Clog have good news to report!

No, they haven’t been released.

But during their stay in prison, it seems that Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd have struck up continued a bit of a romance … in fact, they are now engaged. The news was announced via the couple’s mothers, who recently visited them.

Bauer reportedly proposed back in January, using a ring he made out of his shirt threads. Third-wheel hiker Josh Fattal will serve as best man.

Now we can only hope that someone will grant their release from prison as an engagement gift.
