Missing Al Jazeera reporter deported to Iran

Kim says:

“I’m writing about a non-work matter that I thought you might be able
to help me with. My dear friend Dorothy Parvaz is a journalist with Al
Jazeera. In April she travelled to Syria to cover the political
situation there. She has been missing for weeks, and is believed to
have been deported to Iran. You might have seen this in the news.
She’s also a UBC alum.

We’re doing everything we can to raise awareness of her plight, and
asking Canadians to contact the Canadian embassy in Iran (Dorothy is
also an Iranian citizen) to ask for her release.
