hikers iranian prison4 Hikers' Moms Criticize Iran

The women, including Cindy Hickey of Pine City, are demanding an immediate trial or release of their children from an Iranian prison. Hickey, who’s son Shane Bauer was arrested for straying into Iran last July, has joined the other two prisoners’ mothers in criticizing the country. They’re calling their children’s plight -quote- “a cynical attempt by Iran to exert leverage with the United States.”

 It’s the first time they have publicly criticized the government of Iran.
