Nizar Zakka, a U.S. Legal Permanent Resident from Lebanon, has been held hostage in Iran since September 18, 2015.  

On his way to the airport, the day after he attended an Internet governance conference in Tehran, Nizar was kidnapped by several individuals believed to be associated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. 

Nizar has been subjected to extreme physical and psychological stresses at the notorious Evin Prison and has been falsely accused by Iranian authorities of engaging in espionage. 

On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, Lebanon's Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil took a question about Nizar's matter at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars during the Lebanon Ideas Forum; A Conversation with His Excellency Gebran Bassil.

In addition to Nizar, there are more than 5 Americans and U.S. Legal Permanent Residents being held hostage in Iran.
