Tehran (KNA) - Iran has summoned the Swiss ambassador to Tehran to protest the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)'s "illegal" detention of Press TV news anchor Marzieh Hashemi, who had traveled to the United States to visit her family.


In a meeting on Tuesday with the Swiss envoy, director general for the Americas at Iran’s Foreign Ministry expressed the Islamic Republic's strong protest over the prolongation of the Iranian citizen's imprisonment, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said.

He added that the Iranian Foreign Ministry's official handed over an official note to the Swiss ambassador in protest at the US' detention and "inhumane and discriminatory" behavior toward the Press TV journalist, and asked for her "immediate and unconditional" release.
