CSUN student freed in Iran *

Esha Momeni, a 28-year-old Iranian-American working on a documentary about the women's movement in Iran, has been held since being arrested on Oct. 15. A friend of her family says she was released today on bail. A candlelight vigil planned for 4:30 pm Wednesday at Cal State Northridge will apparently go on as a celebration.
