Prominent Iranian philosopher and writer Ramin Jahanbegloo has been arrested on unspecified charges, judiciary officials said on Wednesday.

Deputy Tehran Prosecutor Mahmoud Salarkia told the ISNA students news agency Jahanbegloo was being held in the capital's notorious Evin prison, where most of Iran's jailed political dissidents are held.

Charges against Jahanbegloo, who also holds Canadian citizenship, "will be announced after the interrogations," an unnamed judiciary official told the Etemad-e Melli newspaper.
And also Human Rights Watch.
