Source: Prominent Iranian translator on hunger strike

(CNN) — A prominent Iranian literary translator imprisoned since January on unknown charges is now on a hunger strike, and relatives say he sounds weak and fragile, a source close to his family said Sunday.

Mohammad Soleimani Nia is refusing solid food and is only drinking salted and sugared water as a way to protest his imprisonment without charge, the source said.
