In the summer of 2009, Shane Bauer, Josh Fattal and Sarah Shourd were hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan when they were deceived by an Iranian border guard and unknowingly crossed the border into Iran. They were arrested, accused of being spies and ultimately ended up in Evin Prison, one of the deadliest torture chambers in the world. They talk about their new memoir, "A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran," a moving and powerful account.
