Moms of Hikers Captured by Iran Say Two of Them Now Engaged

MINNEAPOLIS — Two of the three Americans held for months in an Iranian prison have become engaged and plan to marry after they are released.

That’s according to the mothers of Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd, who are back in the United States after a visit to Iran to see their children. Shourd’s mother, Nora Shourd, has told “Good Morning America” that Bauer made a ring out of threads from his shirt and proposed to Shourd in the exercise area of Evin Prison in Tehran.

The other captured American, Josh Fattal, will be their best man. Nora Shourd says they will get married “as soon as they have their freedom.”
