Washington Post Journalist Jason Rezaian's Trial Starts Today In Tehran

The trial of Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian, who is being held on espionage charges in Iran, is due to start on Tuesday.
After 10 months languishing in the notorious Evin Prison, the Tehran bureau chief is set to face a closed door trial, according to a statement posted online by The Post's Executive Editor Martin Baron.
He detailed the poor treatment Rezaian had received since his July 22, 2014 arrest — including being locked in isolation, denied medical care, and the inability to select a lawyer — and said the trial being "closed to the world" will not allow the appropriate scrutiny.
