Interview with mothers of US Hikers detained in Iran

A brief interview with two mothers (Cindy Hickey and Nora Shourd) of the three US Hikers detained in Iran since August 2009.

Americans Sarah Shourd, Cindy's son Shane Bauer, and Josh Fattal have been imprisoned since straying close to the Iranian border while hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan on 31 July last year. Their mothers -- fiercely determined to bring them home -- are now seasoned veterans of a long but frustrating campaign. This news clip was made to mark one year since three US hikers were arrested. Amnesty International interviewed two of the mothers, Nora Shourd and Cindy Hickey while they were in the UK trying to raises awareness and support for their cause.
