Pas­tor set for re­lease

Waikato Times - - World -

An Amer­i­can pas­tor may soon be re­leased af­ter two years of cap­tiv­ity in Turkey. A per­son in­volved in ef­forts to free An­drew Brun­son, pic­tured, says the 50-year-old evan­gel­i­cal pas­tor from North Carolina could be freed at his next court ap­pear­ance to­day. The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause of­fi­cials had not yet reached a fi­nal agree­ment on the re­lease and it could still fall through. State De­part­ment spokes­woman Heather Nauert told re­porters that the US was hope­ful he would soon go free but said she was un­aware of any agree­ment on his re­lease.
