Naghmeh Abiding posted on her Facebook this morning that it was confirmed that her husband, Pastor Saeed Abedini, who had been held in an Iranian prison, was freed.  

The Iranian government said the Treasure Valley resident and pastor was being held for "a threat to national security."

Four United States citizens were freed early this morning in a prisoner swap.

Kevin Miller of our sister station 580 KIDO has been in contact with Naghmeh Abedini over the last few years, and he's covered this development HERE.

We are so happy for his family and all who have sent thoughts, prayers, and helped call attention to this cause.
