Bahari scorns Iran’s ‘absurd’ sentence on him of 13 years and 74 lashes

Maziar Bahari, the journalist arrested in Iran last year and released on bail after 118 days in prison, has been sentenced in his absence to 13 years and six months in jail plus 74 lashes.

Bahari, who was Newsweek magazine’s correspondent in Iran, was detained in June 2009 in the aftermath of the disputed presidential election. After his release, he flew to London.
