ANKARA - The Committee to Protect Journalists on Thursday called on the Iranian government to immediately release four detained journalists, three of whom it said had US-Iranian nationality.

Two of the detainees are Jason Rezaian, the Tehran correspondent for The Washington Post, and his wife Yeganeh Salehi, a correspondent for the United Arab Emirates-based newspaper the Nation, the CPJ said in a statement.

"We call on Iranian authorities to immediately explain why Jason Rezaian, Yeganeh Salehi, and two other journalists have been detained, and we call for their immediate release," said CPJ Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator Sherif Mansou
