Detained French nationals in Iran arrested over protests: Iran state TV

Iran’s state TV on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of two French citizens, saying they met with protesting teachers and took part in an anti-government rally.

The report said the two French citizens were “organizing a protest” with the purpose of creating “unrest” in Iran.

Last Thursday, France condemned the “groundless arrest” of the two and called for their immediate release.
