FILE - This undated file photo released by his family via FreeAmir.org shows former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, who has been detained in Iran for nearly two years on accusations of spying for the CIA. Hekmati's sister, Sarah Hekmati, told The Flint Journal for a story published Monday, May 6, 2013, that her brother is finally receiving visits from an uncle there and he has been able to send letters to immediate family members. The family holds out hope that the developments could signal some movement toward the 29-year-old’s release and eventual return home. (AP Photo/Hekmati family via FreeAmir.org, File) less
