Families of 2 Americans still in Iran wait, wonder

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- While Sarah Shourd is looking forward to her first weekend away from a Tehran prison, the families of her two fellow Americans still behind bars in Iran are in the same place they've been for months.

The families still have no details about Iran's espionage case against Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, and are pondering limited options against the backdrop of the fraught U.S.-Iran relationship.

Bauer's mother, Cindy Hickey, calls it a "very helpless feeling."

The families were still mulling Friday whether to push for a personal meeting next week with Iran's president when he travels to New York City for a U.N. General Assembly. Their attempt to do so last year was unsuccessful.
