Iran says Russian journalist was detained for visa violation - ISNA

A Russian journalist who is being held in Iran was detained last week for a visa violation and not for spying, the Students News Agency ISNA quoted Iran's government spokesman as saying on Monday.


The spokesman said Yulia Yuzik's case was undergoing a "quick review" by the Iranian authorities but gave no more details.


In a brief phone conversation with her mother last week, Yuzik said security forces had broken into her hotel room and detained her on suspicion of having ties to Israeli intelligence services, her ex-husband Boris Voitsekhovsky said.
