Iran confirms it is holding 4 journalists

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Iran is confirming that it has detained four journalists, including a reporter for The Washington Post and two U.S. freelance photographers, but is not saying why they are being held.


The Washington Post says its correspondent, Jason Rezaian, and his wife were detained Tuesday evening in the Iranian capital, Tehran.


The newspaper says Rezaian holds both American and Iranian citizenship. His wife, Yeganeh Salehi, is an Iranian citizen who has applied for U.S. permanent residency and works as a correspondent for a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates. The other two American photojournalists have not been identified.

IRNA, Iran's official news agency, on Friday confirmed they were being held for questioning.


The Committee to Project Journalists has called for their immediate release.
