French researcher Adelkhah jailed in Iran ends hunger strike
Issued on: Modified:
French-Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah, jailed in Iran since June, ended a six-week hunger strike on Wednesday, according to her lawyer.
“Adelkhah responded to a written request from civil and political activists and ended her hunger strike at midday (0830 GMT) today,” lawyer Said Dehghan told AFP.
Dehghan expressed relief that Adelkhah had ended the hunger strike that she began on December 24, but said she remained fragile.
“Her mental and physical condition is not good, she has been weakened,” he said. “Her voice was difficult to hear and she has difficulty walking.”
