Sarah Shourd freed

(Tehran) -- American Sarah Shourd arrived in Oman today after being freed from more than a year of captivity in Iran. She was met by her mother and uncle at an airport in Muscat, that capital of Oman. She told journalists there that she was fine.

Earlier, Shourd was seen on Iranian state television thanking Iran's president and various officials for helping secure her release. Shourd and two other Americans were arrested in July of last year near the border of Iran and Iraq.

Their families claim the three were hiking, but Iranian officials accused them of espionage. The other two Americans, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, are still in Iran.

President Obama has praised Shourd's release and called on Iran to release the other Americans.
