UPDATE: Saeed Torabian freed but other Iranian bus workers remain in jail

It's good news for once, but it's not all good news. Saeed Torabian, the Publicity Director of the Vahed Bus Workers' Union in Tehran, has been freed after 42 days in jail on trumped up charges of acting against national security and making public expressions against the regime.

But fellow union leaders Mansour Osanloo, Ebrahim Madadi and Reza Shahabi (the latter arrested at the same time as Saeed) are still in jail.

The struggle to get them out continues.
