Two Australians released by Iran after “sensitive” negotiations

Joel King, a British-Australian woman, and her Australian boyfriend Mark Firkin, were detained in Iran earlier this year for flying a drone without a permit. They were blogging a major trip across Asia for thousands of followers on social media. The Australian government secured their release after “sensitive negotiations.” Negotiations continue for the release of a third Australian, Kylie Moore, a lecturer on Islamic studies at Melbourne university, who reportedly received a 10-year sentence as an alleged spy.

      Hmm and the Israeli government DOES NOT shoots down kites and Palestinian drones…. Due to foreign INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES can you blame the Iranians for being overly cautious?

      They also dislike unarmed demonstrators and have shot over 10 THOUSAND this year so far. So maybe the Iranians are the more civilized.

    These two must be total and utter idiots flying drones in that country. Less than the IQ of a gnat between them.
