France Demands Return of Clotilde Reiss From Iran Protest Trial
The French government is demanding the return of a French teaching assistant facing espionage charges by the Iranian government.
French teaching assistant Clotilde Reiss is among a number of people accused of espionage and encouraging protests that have rocked Iran.
The call from France comes during a second court session relating to the protests, where dozens of people are appearing in front of what is being called a 'show trial'.
The court appearances stem from the mass protests that followed the country's disputed election results in June.
An Iranian court has charged the women and dozens of others with spying and helping a Western plot to overthrow clerical rule, in a trial that Britain described as an "outrage".
