Iranian official says she has no new information on detained Washington Post reporter, others

A spokeswoman for Iran's Foreign Ministry says there still is no new information about the Washington Post correspondent detained with three others last month.

Marzieh Afkham told journalists Wednesday that "should new information be provided (by the judiciary), we will announce it."

Rezaian, his wife, Yeganeh Salehi and two photojournalists were detained July 22 in Iran's capital, Tehran.

The Washington Post has said 38-year-old Rezaian holds both American and Iranian citizenship. His wife 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. There were no details released about the photojournalists.
