Ahmadinejad Promises to Free American Hikers


Two American hikers who have spent more than two years in an Iranian prison may be free within the week.

Ahmadinejad’s promise was made in an interview with NBC news that has not yet been aired. The network shared the revelation on Twitter on Tuesday.
