The US secretary of state has called on Iran to free political detainees following reports that many are being abused by the authorities. Dozens were arrested during post-poll protests and 20 are due to face trial next week. Hillary Clinton said she deplored reports that political prisoners were being mistreated. She urged the government to release prisoners held for political reasons and to treat detainees properly.
