US Hiker Not Returning for Trial in Iran

Three US hikers captured crossing into Iran

The US hiker that got lost and accidently wondered into Iran, was detained, and recently released will not be returning for the trial.  Sarah Shourd was with two other hikers when they drifted from Kurdistan into Iran.  Shourd was held for 14 months before being released; she leaft behind her fiance Shane Bauer and friend Josh Fattal, both being held in Tehran on espionage charges.

Shourd is claiming that she has been diagnosed with PTSD and therefore could not hand a trip back to Iran.  Her lawyer has sent this in writing to the court in Tehran.  The source of Shourd’s $500,000 bail posted through the nearby nation of Oman has remained undisclosed.  It is unknown what will come of Bauer and Fattal if found guilty.
