Zahra Kamalfar - free in a free world!

Good news via shlemazl:

An Iranian woman who had been living with her two children at Moscow's international airport for nine months is free in Canada.

Zahra Kamalfar arrived at Vancouver International Airport on Thursday, after a flight from Europe. Surrounded by reporters and supporters, she burst out sobbing, then fainted, after being reunited with her brother, Nader Kamalfar, whom she hadn't seen in nearly 14 years.

I am happy that her suffering is over. We all should be happy that she has escaped the talons of Iranian "security" apparatus. Hopefully, she will be able to recover and lead a normal life after the tragic years in one of the most oppressive regimes in existence.
