Former captive Sarah Shourd begins trip back to US from Iran

MUSCAT, Oman — An American woman released from Iran after more than 13 months in custody has begun her trip back to the United States after thanking Oman for helping to mediate with Tehran.

Sarah Shourd made brief comments Saturday at the airport in Oman’s capital before her flight out of the country.

Shourd thanked Oman for hosting her after her release earlier this week. She was detained in July 2009 along the Iraqi border with her fiance Shane Bauer and their friend Josh Fattal, who remain in Iranian custody.
