CNN has been following the story of Amir Hekmati for years: An Iranian American and former Marine arrested, charged with espionage, and sentenced to death by the Iranian government while visiting his grandmother and other relatives.
Although he was granted a retrial, no one had heard from Hekmati–until now. In a letter he sneaked out of prison and to the State Department, he says that his confession was made under duress. CNN's Brian Todd reports on the details Hekmati reveals in his letter and what chances he has of being released.

CNN's Nick Paton Walsh looks at what happens next for the al-Assad regime's stockpiles.
