GlobalPost's "Global Pulse" blog features an interview with Iranian physician Kamiar Alaei, who along with his brother, Arash Alaei, worked to treat patients with HIV/AIDS in Iran and was arrested and imprisoned by Iranian government authorities in June 2008. Kamiar served more than two years of a three-year sentence, and Arash remains in prison on a six-year sentence. Kamiar talks "about his imprisonment, his work with HIV/AIDS, and his plans for the future," as well as how "[h]e continues to raise awareness about his brother's imprisonment" (Karimjee, 7/26).
