MUSCAT (AFP) — The plane carrying two US hikers, released from Iran after more than two years in jail on charges of spying and illegal entry, arrived in Muscat on Wednesday, an AFP correspondent said.

An aircraft from Oman’s Royal Air Force carrying Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, both 29, arrived at Muscat’s Royal airport, the private airfield of Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the reporter said.

In their light-coloured shirts and dark trousers, the pair ran down the steps of the plane smiling and shouting happily as they hugged their parents and took photographs with them, added the reporter.

“They are healthy, happy and strong, Fattal’s father told AFP.

The two were released earlier Wednesday from Tehran’s notorious Evin prison and boarded a flight to the Gulf sultanate of Oman, which paid their bail.
