Head of anti-government social media outlet detained in Iran - media

Agents of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have captured and returned to Iran an exiled opposition figure who headed a popular anti-government social media outlet, Iranian state television reported.

Ruhollah Zam, a journalist turned activist who headed Amadnews, was based in France and other parts of Europe.

Zam’s capture was a "complex operation using intelligence deception", the Revolutionary Guards said.

"Despite being under the guidance of the French intelligence service and under the protection of the U.S. and Zionist (Israeli) intelligence services, ... he (Zam) was trapped by the Revolutionary Guards intelligence service," Reuters cited the statement as saying.
