British-Iranian national, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, was handed a sixth year in jail in a closed-doors trial by a military court.

The woman's family and UK senior government officials protested the move, calling it an Iranian ploy to gain "bargaining chips" - presumably in negotiations for a return to the 2015 nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic.
