Wife and daughter of British-Iranian man jailed in Tehran speak out


In the midst of all the rising tension with Tehran, the family of a British-Iranian man, who’s been jailed by Iran for up to 12 years, have spoken out for the first time, flatly rejecting allegations he’s an Israeli spy.

Anoosheh Ashoori’s wife Sherry Izadi has launched a petition on the website Change.org.

We sat down with Sherry and her daughter Elika in their first TV interview since Anoosheh was imprisoned, and began by asking them what happened when he was arrested.
