    Reporter Released from Tehran Prison

    Journalist Mazair Bahari had been reporting from Iran for a decade when he was arrested in the wake of the contested re-election of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in June. Humanitarian considerations may have played a role in his release from prison, as Bahari is expecting his first child October 26, and the mother has suffered serious health complications. The Wall Street Journal reported that the reporter’s case was raised when the U.S. and Iran held talks in Geneva recently. Bahari is an award-winning filmmaker, and had a solid reputation for balanced reporting while working as a correspondent in Iran.
