Iran Has Arrested a Prominent Iranian Intellectual and Human Rights Activist

Daniel Drezner's got a troubling post on the Iranian government's arrest of a prominent Iranian intellectual, Dr. Ramin Jahanbegloo. Dr. Jahanbegloo was detained at the airport as he was boarding a flight to Belgium to attend the Brussels Forum on TransAtlantic Challenges in a Global Era. Those wishing to protest Dr. Jahanbegloo's detention should send an e-mail to the Iranian delegation's mission at the United Nations.
