US rights group urges release of Iranian activist

A U.S. human rights group urged U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to secure the release of a prominent Iranian journalist and activist who goes on trial Saturday on charges that carry the death penalty.

It said Shiva Nazar Ahari, founder of the Committee of Human Rights Reporters in Tehran, faces “trumped-up charges” including “actions against national security” and “propaganda against the regime” for her participation in demonstrations and other human rights activism.
