BERLIN (AP) – Germany has summoned Iran’s ambassador to express anger that two detained German journalists in Iran weren’t able to meet with relatives over Christmas despite earlier promises by authorities.

The two journalists were reporting on a highly publicized stoning case for mass-circulation tabloid Bild am Sonntag when they were arrested in early October.

A foreign ministry spokesman said Monday the Iranian ambassador was summoned and government officials “very explicitly expressed their displeasure.” Stefan Bredohl said the government had been under the expectation the journalists would be able to meet their family members and the German ambassador.

Two family members had traveled to Iran on Friday to meet them.
