For one 55-year-old professor, what started out as an overseas trip to the doctor has become part of the shadowy U.S. struggle with Iran.
Iran's president said Thursday that the Islamic republic is open to renewed talks with world powers about its nuclear program, as evidence mounted that fresh Western sanctions are beginning to bite the Iranian economy.
Mr. Atarodi said he worries about his wife, five children and extended family.
"My wife struggles with her own heart problems and diabetics, and my ill mother is dependent on me for financial support," he said in the email exchange, which was conducted with Mr. Kohn serving as intermediary.
