Rally at embassy for hikers in Iran
The families of Elkins Park native Josh Fattal and his friend Shane Bauer are holding a rally Friday outside the Iranian Mission in New York City to raise awareness of the two Americans’ two-year anniversary of imprisonment in the Middle Eastern country.
Sunday is not only the anniversary, it’s also the biggest day of their imprisonment because Fattal and Bauer are expected to finally have their day in court, Fattal’s brother Alex told Metro on Thursday. The trial has been delayed several times already.
“We’re on the edge of our seats,” Alex Fattal said. “I think it’ll go ahead and that gives us hope. If the court is independent and impartial as they’ve been saying all along, they’ll definitely find them innocent — because they are.”
