U.S. hikers return home to U.S.

UNITED STATES.-More than two years after their capture in Iran, two men are finally back home in the U.S.

Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer arrived in New York City Sunday. Just last month, the men were sentenced to eight years in prison, but they were released on bail last week. Fattal and Bauer were arrested along with Bauer’s fiancée, in July 2009, after they mistakenly crossed the border.

Bauer’s fiancée was released last year for medical reasons.
