Fox News Channel has closely followed the story of Christian pastor Saeed Abedini since his arrest in Iran in 2012 while on a trip home to see his extended family and work on an orphanage.
Supporters say he was jailed for no other reason than his Christian faith.
His wife, Naghmeh, has worked tirelessly for his release and today joined America's News HQ on the phone from her home in Boise, ID, as she prepared to meet Abedini in Germany.
She said that when she learned of his release, "I couldn't stop my tears."
