Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal ran down the steps of their plane at an airport in Oman rushing into the arms of their families, who’ve been fighting for their freedom for the 26-months they’ve been imprisoned in Iran.

The government in Tehran accused the two men of espionage after they crossed into Iran while hiking…the men say they got lost.

It was a lover’s reunion for Sarah Shroud, Bauer's fiancée who was arrested with the men, but released last year on medical grounds.

The reunion doesn't come cheap, the Omani government paid a-million dollars in bail to get the two out of Iran. The men are expected to stay in Oman for at least 24 hours before heading home to the US!
