Ahmadinejad: US hikers release 'a humanitarian gesture'

Two US men given an eight year jail term by Iran for spying have been released on bail, say state media.

Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal were to be handed over to the Swiss officials, who represent US interests in Iran.

Speaking to ABC News before the hikers were released President Ahmadinejad said setting them free was a humanitarian gesture.
