Online journalist Hanif Mazroi released

Iranian journalist Hanif Mazroi was freed on 11 November, two months after being arrested in a crackdown against online journalists on 8 September.

Reporters Without Borders welcomed his release but noted that six others were still being held.

Mazroi's father told the French news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP) that his son had been freed after payment of 150 million rials (13,000 euros) bail. He said he did not think the others would be tried "because there is no evidence against them."
