27th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

The German government said Monday that two reporters jailed in Iran have not been able to see their families, refuting an Iranian report that such a meeting had taken place.

The semi-official Iranian news agency Mehr reported Monday that a reunion had taken place in Tabriz, northwest Iran. But a German foreign ministry spokesman said that despite Berlin's efforts, the families had not been given access to the detainees.

"There has been no meeting as yet," the spokesman told AFP.
