SummaryThe ailing father of a former US Marine imprisoned in Iran is pleading with Hassan Rowhani.

The ailing father of a former US Marine imprisoned in Iran is pleading for the release of his son in a letter to President Hassan Rowhani, who is in New York to attend a meeting of world leaders.

''I long more than ever to see Amir's face. I am now very sick with a brain tumor,'' Ali Hekmati wrote in the letter, which was delivered to Hassan Rowhani Wednesday by an Islamic religious official from Michigan who has a personal relationship with Hassan Rowhani, a representative for the family said.

Amir Hekmati, who has dual U.S. and Iranian citizenship, was arrested in 2011 during a visit to Iran.

His family told Hassan Rowhani that he was visiting his grandmother, but Iran accused him of being a CIA spy and convicted him.
