Iran has released the final five of 13 Iranian Jews arrested on charges of spying for Israel. Unlike three other Jews set free last week, this quintet has not been pardoned, American advocates say. The five seem to have been released on furlough for an indefinite period of time, raising concerns that the men have been left in legal limbo and are vulnerable to being rearrested at the whim of Iranian authorities.
