Sarah Shourd — one of three Americans arrested more than a year ago near the Iraq border — will likely be released “in the next two or three days” after a $500,000 bill is paid, according to her Iranian lawyer. After Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Friday he would be releasing Shourd — suffering from health problems — in a Ramadan-timed act of good faith, the judiciary stepped in and said, in so many words, “not so fast.” Sunday, the judiciary announced the new terms, including the bail amount. Shourd’s two companions, though, may not be so lucky — they are likely to remain in prison on espionage charges (Shourd would be tried in absentia).
