Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says he has "no information" on the whereabouts of American journalist Dorothy Parvaz, who disappeared while reporting for Al-Jazeera in Syria.

The Syrian Embassy in Washington said on May 11 that the Iranian-born Parvaz was put on a Caspian Airlines flight to Tehran on May 1, escorted by the Iranian consul in Damascus.

It said Parvaz, 39, was turned over to Iran because she was carrying an expired Iranian passport when she arrived in Damascus on April 29, giving "tourism" as her reason for travel.
