The Post’s Iran bureau chief, who had been held in a prison in Tehran since his arrest in July 2014, appeared to be in good spirits Monday following his more than 18 months spent in incarceration, according to the Post. “I want people to know that physically I’m feeling good,” Rezaian, 39, told the newspaper. “I know people are eager to hear from me, but I want to process this for some time.’’
Rezaian is currently recovering in a U.S. military hospital, according to the Post. He recalled to his editors the 49 days he spent in solitary confinement, in which he got exercise by walking around an 8-by-8-foot concrete courtyard for five hours every day. Rezaian was one of four dual-nationality detainees released from prison in Iran as part of a prisoner swap on Saturday.
