Tehran, Iran, Jul. 16 – Iranian state television aired footage on Monday of two detained Iranian-Americans, in a move that was reminiscent of the parading of 15 British sailors on state television earlier this year.

State television showed images of Haleh Esfandiari, 67, and Kian Tajbakhsh, 45, both making statements, although it was not clear what they were saying.

At one point Esfandiari who was dressed in black said that she was an “element” in the “velvet revolution in Georgia”.

The report said that further footage would be aired on Wednesday at 21:45 local time.

Esfandiari heads the Middle East program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Tajbakhsh works with George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
