Two Bahais from Mashhad, Shayan Tafazolli ( شایان تفضلی ) and Sina Aqdas-zadeh ( سینا اقدس زاده ), have been freed on bail of 100 million tumans (65,000 euros; 81,000 US dollars), after two months of ‘temporary’ detention by the Ministry of Information. They were released on August 25 and 26 respectively.

On August 27, six Bahais from Yazd were released on bail, after 28 days in detention. Bail for Iman Rashidi and Faribourz Baghi (ایمان رشیدی و فریبرز باغی) was set at 80 million tumans.
