Documentary Released on Hikers Detained in Iran

Nov 8, 2010

The documentary, Free Shane & Josh, is 25 minutes of explanation of how three American hikers crossed near the border of Iraq and Iran and were detained by the Iranian military last year, Wend reports. Sarah Shourd, the one of the three hikers who has been released, reveals some detail of their imprisonment in an interview.

The film, which can be watched in full online, is interesting, but it's also almost a literal plea to free the hikers. If you're moved, more on the effort to have Shane and Josh released can be found at Free the Hikers.
