Will Iran Free the Two American Hikers?

Hosted by

Just yesterday, Iran's President Ahmadinejad told NBC's Today show that two American hikers detained on charges of espionage would be released on bail. Today, his country's conservative judiciary said, no deal. The Iranian judges referred to Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal as convicted spies. Their release, which the judges said was "mentioned by some media," was "denied." Iranian-American human rights activist Mariam Memarsadeghi, founder of the Tavaana E-Learning Institute for Iranian Civil Society, says that's not the end of the story.
