Prominent Iranian environmentalist dies in prison

Kavous Seyed-Emami was arrested last month on spying charges and Iran's judiciary says he killed himself while in detention. His son has said he doesn't believe he took his own life.

Ahmad Sadri is a Professor of Sociology and Islamic World Studies at Lake Forest College, Illinois and was a friend of Mr Emami.
