BERLIN (AP) – A German tourist who was arrested with a Frenchman after their boat allegedly strayed into Iranian waters has been freed from prison in Iran’s capital, Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Monday.

Donald Klein, a 52-year-old sculptor, was arrested along with Stephane Lherbier in November 2005 after entering Iran’s territorial waters during a sailing trip off the coast of neighboring United Arab Emirates.

The two were convicted in January 2006 and sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Lherbier was released last month.
