One Woman's Story of Captivity in Iran

One Woman's Story of Captivity in Iran

In December of 2006, Dr. Haleh Eshandairi went to Iran to visit her elderly mother. On December 30, she was on her way to the airport to catch a flight back to Washington, when her taxi was stopped and she was robbed of her baggage, including Iranian and American passports. What followed in the days afterward as she attempted to replace her documents and make her way home is incomprehensible to most of us. She ended up serving 105 days in an Iranian prison and returned home in September of 2007. Join us on Thursday when talk with Dr. Esfandiari.
