The pan—Arab broadcaster Al—Jazeera says Syrian officials report that one of the network’s journalists was sent to Iran following her detention last month in Damascus.
Wednesday’s statement from the Qatar—based network urges Iranian authorities to provide details on Dorothy Parvaz, who was last seen leaving the Qatari capital Doha for Syria on April 29.
Last week, Al—Jazeera said Syrian authorities confirmed the detention of Ms. Parvaz, who holds U.S., Iranian and Canadian citizenship. She works for the network’s English—language channel.
Syrian officials have sharply limited media access to the country following an uprising against the authoritarian regime of President Bashar Assad.
