If West Hampstead's Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe hadn't been given diplomatic protection last night, she might have seriously considered another hunger strike, her husband Richard told the Ham&High.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is now subject to the UK's diplomatic protection, the Foreign Office announced today,

Days after announcing she will embark on a hunger strike later in January, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has had her weekly phone call with husband Richard blocked and been given a decreased food ration.

Jailed West Hampstead woman Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe will go on hunger strike later this month over "concerns for her health and survival", she has announced.

The prime minister and foreign secretary have ramped up pressure on Iran to release Nazanin, during talks in New York.

On July 21, the Judge responsible for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's imprisonment confirmed that she would not be given parole, or shown clemency on humanitarian grounds. Alone, this announcement was nothing new.
