An American journalist and news anchor for Iran’s state television network Press TV is due in a Washington, D.C., courtroom today, after she was arrested and detained by the FBI during a visit to the United States. Marzieh Hashemi, who’s a U.S. citizen who lives in Tehran, was arrested at the St. Louis airport Sunday and then transferred to a prison in Washington, D.C., according to her son. The Committee to Protect Journalists says it’s concerned about the arrest, and called on the U.S. Department of Justice to immediately disclose the basis for her detention for the past five days.
