Tehran: Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Saturday that he had "no information" on the whereabouts of an American journalist working for Al-Jazeera after Damascus said she was sent to Tehran, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"I have no information," replied Salehi to a question about whether Syria, Iran`s main Arab ally, had handed over the journalist.

Syria expelled Dorothy Parvez to Iran after she tried to enter illegally on an expired Iranian passport, the Syrian embassy in Washington said in a statement on Wednesday.
The embassy said Parvez was put on a Caspian Airlines flight to Tehran on May 01, escorted by the Iranian consul in Damascus.
