Here is the Official story: American Hikers Leave Iran After Prison Release Two American hikers imprisoned on espionage charges in Iran were released Wednesday after days of conflicting signals, ending diplomatic skirmishing that complicated the United States’ already fraught relationship with Tehran for more than two years.
