One of the sons, Ramin Seyed-Emami, quickly reached out to friends in Canada, phoning and texting to stay in contact amid the unfolding uncertainty.

Mombeini is the widow of Kavous Seyed-Emami, an environmental activist and sociology professor who was arrested on January 24 and died in prison. Ramin cried as he described the moment he and his brother had to leave his mother in Tehran. "I don't want her to be alone for one single second".

"She just wanted us to be safe and on that plane. And no matter what happens to me, don't ever come back, '" Ramin told reporters after landing at the Vancouver airport Thursday.

In a tweet, Freeland said she was "outraged" Mombeini had been detained, and demanded that she be allowed to return to Canada.

The family - all of whom are dual citizens of Iran and Canada - were boarding a Lufthansa flight for Canada on Wednesday when Maryam Mombeini, 55, was stopped by security forces and told she was forbidden from leaving the country. She was prevented from leaving Iran and their two sons had to fly alone, leaving her behind. "The authorities told our lawyers to tell the brothers "to shut up or we'll shut them up". Needless to say, the emotional damage and distress that we've endured are beyond comprehension. "But we will not be silenced and we will share our story with the hopes that fellow Iranians and Canadians will also speak up".

Kavous Seyed-Emami was a 63-year-old sociology professor who died in prison just two weeks after he was arrested on suspicion of espionage and spying. The family doubts that version, however, accuses the authorities of being responsible for the death.

Kavous Seyed-Emami was a US -trained scholar in sociology and the managing director of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, which seeks to protect Iran's rare animals.

Cognitive games may make you a better driver, the sons of an Iranian-Canadian academic who died in prison arrive in Vancouver, and researchers claim to have found aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart's bones.

Omar Alghabra, parliamentary secretary for the foreign affairs minister, said the government is "fully committed to reuniting them with their mother and we'll exercise all diplomatic channels and all actions before us to see their mother reunited with them".

Canada is pressuring Iran to allow the wife of a Canadian-Iranian professor who died in a Tehran prison to return to Canada, and is demanding answers on the circumstances of his death, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Thursday.
