TABRIZ, Iran — The son of an Iranian woman whose death sentence by stoning caused world outrage has been released on bail Saturday.

Sajjad Qaderzadeh told reporters in the northwest city of Tabriz that he was released after posting bail and was now free. He was originally arrested in October after speaking with two German journalists about his mother's case.

It is not clear if he was ever formally charged, but he said he was arrested because the journalists had not been authorized. The Germans remain in custody for working as journalists after entering the country on tourist visas.
