Members of the delegation predict Minnesota native Shane Bauer and his friend Josh Fattal will be released in a matter of days. The one-million dollars bail has reportedly already been paid and now just one more signature is needed for them to be released. The judge that needs to sign off has been on vacation, but is due back today.

Bauer and Fattal have been jailed since July of 2009 when they were hiking in northern Iraq and accidentally strayed into Iran
