Johnson to raise jailed Briton Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's case in Iran trip

The Foreign Secretary was widely criticised after incorrectly telling a parliamentary committee that she had been training journalists in Iran, later acknowledging that this was not the case.

Boris is likely to meet with Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who has previously hinted that he could take steps to help Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe.
