Please be advised the DUBAI story reporting jailed Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been released is wrong. The source, the opposition Kaleme website, withdrew its story and said she had not been released. The story "Jailed Iranian lawyer Sotoudeh temporarily released: website" has been withdrawn. There will be no substitute story.
