LONDON (AP) — A British woman jailed in Iran has spoken from prison to thank Britons trying to get her released.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe spoke to supporters at a London rally Saturday through a telephone and loudspeaker.
She said that “I’m so grateful for everybody’s support and love,” adding that her only goal is to return home to be with her family.
The 38-year-old charity worker is a dual British-Iranian citizen who has been in prison in Iran since April 2016 after being accused of plotting against Iran’s government.
