Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian sues Iran over 'torture'
 

Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post's former bureau chief in Tehran, is suing Iran's government after he was imprisoned there for 18 months.
The lawsuit says Mr Rezaian suffered "irreparable harm" due to "torture and other cruel treatment".
It claims Iran "held him hostage for the purpose of extorting concessions" during talks with the US over its nuclear programme.
Yeganeh Salehi, the journalist's wife, was also held for 72 days.
