Americans freed from Iran reunite with loved ones


CBS News correspondent Liz Palmer reports the newly released Americans who were held prisoners in Iran are getting assessed medically and easing back into the rhythms and relationships of normal life at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

The three were flown to Europe on a Swiss air force jet Sunday. Among them were Washington Post Tehran reporter Jason Rezaian, who met with his family and his bosses.

Also thrilled to be with his family at last is Amir Hekmati, a Marine veteran jailed since 2011.

Christian pastor Saeed Abedini, who was arrested in 2012, was also freed in the exchange. His wife is expected to join him shortly. It is not yet known how long the newly Americans will stay at the hospital, but history suggests between a week and ten days.
