Amnesty is also currently involved in an appeal on behalf of a blogger in Iran who was detained earlier this month while reporting on clashes between security forces and supporters of Shi'a cleric Ayatollah Boroujerdi. Amnesty say that they fear for the safety of Kianoosh Sanjari and that he may be tortured.
"Freedom of expression online is a right, not a privilege – but it’s a right that needs defending. We’re asking bloggers worldwide to show their solidarity with web users in countries where they can face jail just for criticising the government."
