Last trial for hikers in Iran to begin this weekend

BERKELEY, Calif.

Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal are due in court on Sunday for what Iranian authorities say will be the last hearing in their espionage case.

Bauer's fiance, Sarah Shourd, was also arrested but was released last year on humanitarian grounds.

The hearing comes two years to the day they were arrested while hiking along the Iraq-Iran border.

The trial was canceled at the last minute in May without any explanation.
