Free Shane and Josh: New documentary on detained hikers offers more evidence of their innocence
huffington / Marcus Baram

Free Shane and Josh", produced and directed by Jeff Kaufman, tells the story of Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal, three idealistic Americans who traveled to Kurdistan, the mountainous region of Iraq, in the summer of 2009 to hike and see the sights when they were detained and imprisoned by Iranian soldiers patrolling the border. Iranian authorities accuse them of illegally crossing the border and spying. Shourd was freed on bail in September after nearly 14 months in a Tehran prison but her fiancé, Bauer, and Fattal remain in prison -- their trial was expected to begin on Saturday but it has been postponed.
