British-Iranian mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been released temporarily by the Iranian authorities because of the coronavirus outbreak, says her husband.


Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said: I am relieved that Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was today temporarily released into the care of her family in Iran.

We urge the regime to ensure she receives any necessary medical care. While this is a welcome step, we urge the government now to release all UK dual nationals arbitrarily detained in Iran, and enable them to return to their families in the UK.
