(Tehran)  --  An Iranian prosecutor says one of three American hikers held in the country for more than a year on spying allegations can be freed on a 500-thousand dollar bail and allowed to leave Iran.  Iran's Press TV is reporting that a prosecutor in Tehran has said Sarah Shourd will be released once her bail money is paid.  Calling her an "American spy," the prosecutor said Shourd "is not barred from leaving Iran," but added that the other two hikers, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, would remain in custody.  The prosecutor also added the espionage trial for all three Americans would still move forward.
