This story caught my eye

This story caught my eye after our readings this week:

U.S. officials are looking into the arrest of an Iranian-American student who was working on her thesis project on women's rights in Tehran. Esha Momeni, a grad student at Cal State-Northridge, was arrested on Oct. 15 for unlawfully passing another vehicle while driving. She is being held in a section of Tehran's notorious Evin Prison, which houses many dissidents and political prisoners. At first, officials promised Momeni's family that she would be immediately released if the news of her arrest was not published, but when her parents went to Iran's Revolutionary Court five days later, they were told not to return until the investigation into her case had been completed. More information about the campaign for Momeni's release is available on the blog Free Esha. [CNN]
