Iran to resume French's trial Tuesday: ISNA
The trial of a French teaching assistant who was arrested on spying charges following Iran's disputed election in June will resume on Tuesday, the ISNA news agency reported on Sunday.

Clotilde Reiss, who is out of jail on bail, has been staying in the French embassy in Tehran since her trial started on Aug. 16.

ISNA cited a statement from Tehran's Revolutionary Court for its report on the new trial session, but did not give details.

France has insisted that Reiss is not guilty and has demanded her unconditional release.

Iran's foreign ministry rejected the demand as "unacceptable."

"Clotilde Reiss will not be pardoned under political pressure and nobody has the right to decide on the judge's behalf," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmandoust was quoted as saying earlier this week by the Fars news agency.
