Women’s Rights Activist Detained in Iran

I am concerned to learn that Mahboubeh Karami, a Women’s rights activist, has been imprisoned in Evin prison in Tehran since the 2nd of March. Amnesty International believes she has been detained solely because of her Human Rights work and that she is in danger of being tortured or otherwise maltreated.
