"Based on reports and the approval of the relevant judge about the sickness of Ms. Shourd, her detention was converted to $500,000, and if the bail is deposited, she can be released," he was quoted as saying.
A top White House official said Sunday the United States is "hopeful" that Iran will release one of three American hikers who have been held since July of last year. Authorities in Tehran have agreed to release Sarah Shourd on $500,000 bail for medical reasons, pending her trial on spying and illegally entering the country.
The announcement was the latest turnabout in a case that has further strained the poor relations between Tehran and Washington. Contradictory signals from Iran about the fate of the three Americans have also exposed factional infighting in Iran’s government.
