TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Britain's top diplomat has raised the case of a British-Iranian woman who has been detained in Iran for more than two years during his visit to the Islamic Republic.

The semi-official ISNA news agency on Tuesday quoted the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying that Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt raised the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe with Iranian officials, without elaborating.

Hunt met Iran's foreign minister and a top security official on Monday.
