The Daily Beast is reporting this morning that Dorothy Parvaz, the Al Jazeera English reporter and 2009 PJP Fellow who was seized by Syrian authorities 19 days ago, has been released by Iran, where she had been sent by the Syrians after they claimed she was traveling on an expired Iranian passport.
