Iranian lawyer 'upset' that hiker's release canceled

The lawyer for three U.S. hikers accused of spying in Iran is "upset" that Sarah Shourd's planned release has been canceled and said her family's emotions are "being abused."

"Put yourself in her mother's shoes.," Masoud Shafili said on Saturday. "It's been more than year and she has no idea why her daughter was arrested and what will happen to her."

Iranian officials had said on Thursday that Shourd, one of three American hikers held in Iran for more than a year, would be released this weekend. But Friday, prosecutors said the release had been "canceled" because the judicial process has not been completed.

Shourd, 32, along with Shane Bauer, 28, and Josh Fattal, 28, were detained July 31, 2009, after they allegedly strayed across an unmarked border into Iran while hiking in Iraq's Kurdistan region.

    I cannot believe these three idots went hiking in that area. Look at where their stupid actions got them and the situation those actions put two entire countries. Hopefully they will all be freed and hopfully the US government will put them in jail in the US for being so stupid. The resouces alone we wasted on them should be taken out of the hides.
