Iran to release one of three captured US hikers

Iran is set to release on Saturday Sarah Shourd - one of three detained US hikers held since last July and accused of espionage, officials say.

She was seized with Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, both 27, last July. Tehran accuses them of entering illegally and having links to US intelligence.

The hikers' families say they were in northern Iraq's Kurdistan region and unintentionally crossed the border.

Kim Ghattas reports.
