Sarah Shourd: 'All I did was cry and beat at the walls'


Sarah Shourd was arrested when hiking with two other Americans on Iraq's border with Iran in 2009.

After 14 months in Tehran's notorious Evin prison she was released. But her fiancée and their friend are still there nearly two years on. They've had barely any contact with the outside world and although they were promised a trial, it still hasn't happened.

Sarah Montague spoke to her about her ordeal.
