Vigil held for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

Supporters of a British-Iranian mother imprisoned in Iran have held a candlelit vigil outside the Iranian embassy in London.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a charity worker, has been detained for almost 300 days, and was jailed for five years in September for allegedly plotting to topple the government in Tehran.

Her two-year-old daughter Gabriella also had her British passport confiscated and has been left stranded in Iran with her grandparents.

In this video, Nazanin’s husband, Richard Ratcliffe, outlines his efforts to get justice for his wife and daughter.
