Two American hikers who were imprisoned in Iran after straying into the country from Iraq have arrived in New York. The two - Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer - were arrested in 2009 and accused of spying. They were released from Tehran's notorious Evin prison two days ago after paying bail of one-million US dollars.
