A British-Iranian mother held in Iran since last year has had her five-year jail sentence confirmed despite her husband's campaign to bring her home.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was held by police while trying to leave the country with her baby daughter, Gabriella, in April 2016.
A five-year prison sentence 'on security charges' was today finalised, according to Iranian news agency Mizanonline.ir, which is affiliated with the country's judiciary.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who works for the charitable arm of Thomson Reuters, had her passport seized and as Iran does not recognise dual nationality, consular assistance is limited.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's parents were said to be in "deep shock" at the decision.
They had received private reassurances they matter would be resolved, according to a statement issued by her husband Richard Ratcliffe after the decision.
Mr Ratcliffe once described the sentence as a "punishment without a crime".
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested at Imam Khomeini airport and had been accused of "plotting to topple the Iranian regime" but no further details have been given.
PM Theresa May made a personal appeal to the Iranian president to resolve the case in a phone call in August 2016.
