Iranian state-run television showed the first footage of two detained Iranian-Americans on Monday, promising more images in the coming days. The video showed Haleh Esfandiari and Kian Tajbakhsh separately, both located in what appeared to be residential homes wearing civilian attire. The footage was undated, but the television advertised at the bottom of the screen that it would follow with a full broadcast on Wednesday evening at 21:45 local time (GMT 18:45). The television images followed Iran's announcement earlier in July that fresh evidence had pushed its judiciary to launch new investigations into the cases of both detainees, held on charges of endangering national security.
