TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's English language state television has reported that American Sarah Shourd has been released after more than a year in prison.

"Iran has released US national Sarah Shourd," flashed the red colored urgent banner on Press TV Tuesday.

Shourd, 32, together with two other Americans were apprehended by Iranian security forces near the border with northern Iraq on July 2009. They have been accused of spying.
