It is not known where he is being held. In a separate development, three newspaper journalists have been given prison sentences in the north of the country.“We urge the authorities to provide information about Nasr’s situation,” the press freedom organisation said. “This journalist has been subjected to frequent harassment in the past for working for foreign news media. We call for his immediate release.”Aged 25, Nasr received a telephone summons to report to the authorities on 13 November. According to his family, ministry of intelligence officials intercepted him as he left his office and took him to an unknown location.Nasr has been arrested several times in the past two years. He was last arrested in September while preparing a report for Radio Farda about a strike by thousands of workers in the south of the country.

Bahamani was sentenced to 16 months in prison. The two reporters got four months. They have decided to appeal.The three journalists spent several days custody in February after criticising President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s policy during a visit he made to the province.
