On Saturday, the day of the supermoon, Sarah Shourd and Shane Bauer got married near Half Moon Bay, California. They are the U.S. hikers who were imprisoned by Iran, Sarah for 14 months and Shane for more than two years. Shane proposed to Sarah in the Evin prison by tying a thread from his shirt around her finger in the prison yard during one of their brief daily meetings. Josh Fattal, the third U.S. hiker, who was jailed with Shane, was the best man. Among those who attended was Swiss diplomat Livia Leu, the Swiss ambassador to Iran who represents U.S. interests in Iran and helped negotiate the hikers’ release.
