Greta Van Susteren Gets First Interview With Pastor Freed by Iran

By Mark Joyella 

Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren has interviewed Saeed Abedini, a Christian missionary who ran an orphanage in Iran and was one of three Americans released from an Iranian prison along with Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian.

Abedini sat down with Van Susteren Monday in an interview set to air tonight on On the Record (7 p.m. ET).

In a preview posted to Facebook, Abedini says he spent two months of his confinement in a cell with former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, who was also released. Abedini says upon seeing the condition of Hekmati when they first met, he told Van Susteren “I got very heartbroken to see what they did to our Marine.”
