American Prisoners Arrive in Germany

GENEVA (AP) – The Americans released by Iran have arrived in Germany, according to a U.S. State Department official speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss their status.

No other details were immediately available about how long they would remain in Germany and when they might return to the U.S.

Earlier on Sunday, the three Americans landed in Geneva aboard a Swiss air force plane.

U.S. officials had said Saturday that the released prisoners would be taken to a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, for medical treatment. The hospital is near the U.S. military’s Ramstein Air Base.

The said Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, and pastor Saeed Abedini were on the flight, but a fourth freed American, Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari, was not.

A fifth American, student Matthew Trevithick was released independently of the larger swap, and already had headed home.
