There are international calls for the Iranian authorities to act immediately to ensure that the life of Soheil Arabi is not put in any further danger. Mr. Arabi has been on hunger strike for 40 days, ten of which have been a dry strike without water. The health of the thirty-two year-old man is very precarious and is deteriorating rapidly. The authorities have refused to treat Mr. Arabi.
