Boris Johnson 'endangered' Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's life

Mr Johnson went on to apologise for the "distress and suffering" caused by his remarks, adding: "I do apologise, I do apologise and of course I retract any suggestion that she was there in a professional capacity".

Johnson later apologized for his comment, but Iran's state broadcaster said it was an implicit admission of guilt.

Pressure on Mr Johnson has been building after he told a parliamentary committee last week that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe was "simply teaching people journalism" in Iran.

Senior Labour MP Yvette Cooper said: "The foreign secretary has rightly and welcomingly said that the priority of everyone should be the return of a wrongly and inhumanely imprisoned mother who has been separated from her child. No evidence has been produced which suggests she should be detained".

"It's hard to imagine such a mistake being made by an FCO official but, even if it were, the buck stops with the Foreign Secretary", said Mr Penman.

Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt told Mr Ratcliffe on Friday "serious consideration" was being given to allowing him to travel to Iran with Mr Johnson.

The statement said: "She noted that she is very down, that she can not handle all this".

He claimed there was an "effort to shift the blame away from those who are really at fault here, and that is the Iranian regime".

Defending his Cabinet colleague who is facing calls to resign, Mr Gove also criticised those trying to "blame politicians in a democracy who are trying to do the right thing". "Iran. Let's not play their game".

Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested and accused of plotting to topple the Iranian regime, which she denies, following a holiday. Concern over her physical and mental health is growing, and neither Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe nor her husband has had access to their daughter, who is being looked after by her grandparents in Iran.

He added: "I think he's our Foreign Secretary whose job is diplomacy and representing the best interests of our country and if Theresa May was a strong Prime Minister she would have sacked him a long time ago".

"It appears Gove is more interested in protecting Johnson's job than the liberty of a British citizen in jail in Iran".

It's unclear whether the decision by several advertisers to pull their ads will result in any serious repercussions for the show. "We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show", Keurig responded.


He said: "Nazanin is being held because she is British and is being used as a bargaining chip against the United Kingdom, now justified by your words".
