The Iranian authorities summoned the Swiss ambassador، as acting US in Tehran، to protest against Washington's arrest of an Iranian television reporter.

The Iranian capital، Tehran، witnessed a protest rally outside the Swiss embassy in Tehran، which sponsors American interests in Iran، over the arresting of journalist Mervia Hashmi in the United States.

Noteworthy، Reuters reported that an American journalist working for Iran’s state television channel Press TV who Iran says has been detained in Washington will appear in a U.S. court on Friday.

Iran has called for the immediate release of TV anchor and documentary film maker Marziyeh Hashemian، whose employer، the English-language channel Press TV، said was arrested on Sunday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at St. Louis Lambert International Airport.
