Lawyer: Iranian-American released by Iran

Iran has freed an Iranian-American detained for more than two years
under suspicion of being associated with an anti-regime group, his lawyer said Saturday.

Reza Taghavi, a retired businessman from Orange County, California,
was released Saturday after being held in Iran's notorious Evin prison since his arrest in May 2008.
