LONDON: Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister Micheal Martin has called on Iran to release an Irish citizen arrested during anti-regime protests last year.

Bernard Phelan, 64, was detained on Oct. 3 for allegedly taking photographs of protests, security forces and a mosque that had been set on fire.

Phelan, who also holds French citizenship, went on hunger and water strike on Jan. 1 but suspended his protest last week.
