Clinton "deplores" any abuse of prisoners in Iran

WASHINGTON, July 29 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday "deplored" the alleged abuse of political prisoners in Iran following the election and urged their immediate release.

"We believe that it is imperative for (Iran) ... to release political prisoners and treat them appropriately and humanely," said Clinton, adding that the continued detention and alleged abuse of prisoners suggested the political situation inside of Iran had not been resolved.
