Johnson sorry over Zaghari-Ratcliffe remarks

International Editor

The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has apologised over remarks he made about the British-Iranian woman who’s been jailed in Iran. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has insisted she was on holiday there when she was arrested in 2016, a claim which Mr Johnson had appeared to contradict. Pressed by Labour in the Commons today,he apologised for the “distress and anguish” caused to her family, promising to meet her husband Richard Ratcliffe later this week.
