TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency is reporting the second hearing in the trial of detained Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian will be held Monday.
The ISNA report Wednesday quoted Rezaian's lawyer, Leila Ahsan. The Associated Press could not immediately reach her for comment.
Rezaian, the Post's 39-year-old bureau chief, had his first closed-door hearing in May 26 in a Revolutionary Court on charges including espionage and propaganda against the Islamic Republic. U.S. officials, the Post and rights groups have criticized his trial, which comes as Iran negotiates with world powers over its contested nuclear program.
Rezaian, his wife and two photojournalists were detained on July 22. All were released except Rezaian, who has been held over 300 days. His wife and one of the photojournalists reportedly also will face trial.
