Another Iran exchange rate

Syrian prisoner swap details  --

A spokesman for a Turkish Islamic aid group that helped coordinate the release said the regime had agreed to release 2,130 people in exchange for the Iranians, who were released Wednesday. The aid group said four Turks were among those to be freed. Speaking in Istanbul, Umit Sonmez of the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief said the 48 Iranians were handed over to aid workers soon after the Syrian regime let a group go.

2130 Syrians for 48 Iranian "piligrims."

Those are some pricey pilgrims.
