Washington Post reporters Yeganeh Salehi and her husband Jason Rezaian were detained along with two other journalists on July 22
(DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES) — The National newspaper says Iran has released its correspondent Yeganeh Salehi on bail, while her husband, Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian, remains in detention.
The Abu Dhabi-based newspaper on Monday cited Ali Rezaian, Jason’s brother, as saying the 30-year-old reporter was freed on bail late last week. It quoted him as saying the two were “physically healthy” and that Salehi had been allowed to visit her husband recently. Jason Rezaian, 38, has American and Iranian citizenship.
The two were detained along with two other journalists on July 22. The two other reporters were later freed. Iranian officials have not said why the four were detained. Officials were not available for comment on the reported release, and there were no reports on it in state media.
