Iran's Weekly Wire 7

In this episode: Amir Hekmati is the longest officially-held American prisoner in Iran. At the time of this broadcast, he has been imprisoned in Iran for 1307 days.

Iran won't reveal any evidence against him, or say what it hopes to gain by holding him.

This week on the Wire, Roland Elliott Brown speaks to Amir's sister, Sarah Hekmati, about Amir's ordeal, and his family's.

He also talks to Hadi Ghaemi of the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran about how Hekmati's case reveals hidden struggles inside Iran's political system.
