An Iranian-American scholar released after months of imprisonment in Iran has no passport and cannot leave the country where she still faces charges of endangering national security, her lawyer said Wednesday. Haleh Esfandiari, 67, was released on bail Tuesday from Iran's notorious Evin prison where she was held since May. Her 93-year-old mother used the deed to her Teheran apartment to post bail. Her family said their greatest worry is her frail health and mental well-being after months behind bars and they hope she will be able to leave Iran soon.
