+ - Imprisoned Physicist Honored for Refusing to Work on Iran's Nuclear Program->

I3MOUNTAINS writes: Omid Kokabee, a University of Texas graduate student who has been imprisoned in Iran for more than two years, received APS's Andrei Sakharov human rights prize for refusing to collaborate on the country's nuclear program. In May, an Iranian court sentenced him to ten years in prison for "communicating with a hostile government" and receiving "illegal earnings." The so-called "illegal earnings" were the student loans he received while in Texas.
