Iranian human rights lawyer Sotoudeh: 'Free forever'

By Shirzad Bozorgmehr, CNN

Tehran, Iran (CNN) - Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent Iranian human rights activist, was among five women activists released Wednesday from a Tehran prison where she had been jailed since 2010.

"I'm glad, but I'm worried for my friends in prison," she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in a telephone interview soon after her release, citing other political and human rights activists who remain in prison.

Sotoudeh said authorities at the notorious Evin Prison initially told her she would be allowed out on a short break. They then put her into a car.
