Brother: Volleyball arrest woman 'under a lot of stress'

A 25-year-old British woman called Ghonchech Ghavemi is to go on trial in Iran for watching a men's volleyball match. She has already been in jail for three months. And has been on hunger strike for 14 days now in protest.

Her brother, Iman Ghavami, told the Today programme that his mother, who recently visited her in prison, found Ms Ghavemi pale and weak and "under a lot of psychological stress".
