Reunited: American hikers spend first full day of freedom with family

    Hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal spent their first full day of freedom yesterday with their families.

    The Associated Press reports the two hikers, released Wednesday from a prison in Iran, spent the day with their families in the Gulf State of Oman.

    The two had been held in Iran for more than two years after being accused of spying.

    On Wednesday, a bail-for-freedom deal was reached and the two were released.
