Hunt: Keep Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe case out of Tory leadership battle

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has refused to say whether Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's release from an Iranian jail would become less likely if Boris Johnson became prime minister.

Mr Hunt said he did not want her case to become a "brickbat in a Conservative leadership campaign" following criticism of Mr Johnson's handling of the situation while he was in the Foreign Office.
