The latest deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran has come and gone and surprise, surprise, surprise, the talks have now appear to have been extended indefinitely.
Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian’s time in captivity in Iran has also been extended indefinitely as his espionage trial has resumed in Tehran. Read what Saeed Kamali Dehghan has written in the Guardian about the proceedings:
There has been international condemnation of the prolonged detention of the 39-year-old, who was working in Iran with appropriate accreditation and has had two hearings since May. Iran has a history of jailing journalists working for the foreign press. Its intelligence authorities have a deep suspicion of citizens with dual nationality. Iran does not recognise dual nationality and thus treats Rezaian solely as an Iranian.
