Kylie Moore-Gilbert named as British-Australian academic held in Iran

She has been held for a “number of months” already, on charges that remain unclear, the Australian government says.
Dr Moore-Gilbert is the third foreign national revealed this week to have been arrested in the country.
Media reports say she has been sentenced to 10 years in jail.
“We believe that the best chance of securing Kylie’s safe return is through diplomatic channels,” her family said in a statement issued through the Australian government.
