A Canadian journalist's nightmare...
An Iranian-Canadian journalist is speaking out about his ordeal in a Tehran prison.
Maziar Bahari was arrested while covering the controversial presidential election in Iran last June.
He endured 118 days in prison, suffering physical abuse and regular threats of execution.
In an interview with CBC's Nancy Durham, Bahari describes everything from how his interrogator beat him to how a Leonard Cohen song got him through.
You can watch that here.
Bahari is a reporter with Newsweek. You can read his diary on Newsweek online here.
