The Washington Post's publisher said in a statement, "After enduring such deplorable conditions and inhumane treatment, the top priority now must be Jason’s health and well-being."
Rezaian spent over 540 days under Iranian imprisonment. The Washington Post reports he was the longest-held Western journalist since Iran's revolution in 1979.
