The United States said on Friday it is concerned Iran has arrested a journalist and stopped him picking up a rights award in New York in a sign of what it called worsening violations in the Islamic republic. Emadeddin Baghi was due to receive next Monday a Civil Courage Award from the Northcote Parkinson Fund, which said he had previously been imprisoned for exposing the killings of intellectuals. Baghi was arrested at Tehran airport and denied permission to leave the country, and will now apparently face charges of criticizing the government, State Department spokesman Gregg Sullivan said.
