Hikers' release delayed again, lawyer says

The attorney for two American hikers who have been detained for more than two years said their release has been delayed again.

Bail has been paid for Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, lawyer Masoud Shafiee said, but Shafiee needs the signatures of two judges to prove it.

"I went to the court earlier this morning to get the second judge's signature needed to begin my clients' release procedure, but was told by the court that the judge had not returned," Shafiee said Tuesday.

He said the court did not indicate when the judge will be back and did not give any more explanation.

    I had a feeling they were going to pull a stunt like this. I mean, did they REALlY think they were going to let them go? You can't trust 'em.. I do hope they get out, eventually. They are in a land of lawlessness. We should have thought about fighting the country to implement American Law... Hey, they are fighting flr Sharia Law over here! We didn't think we'd be in this situation tho, did we?
