FLINT (WJRT) -

(09/25/12) - Mott Community College is inviting the community to a candlelight vigil for Amir Hekmati's family.

Hekmati's father, Ali, is a professor at Mott.

Ali recently suffered a stroke and had surgery to remove a brain tumor.

His son remains in Iran. He's been detained there since last August, accused of being a CIA spy.

The family says Amir was there visiting his grandmothers.

Tuesday's candlelight vigil starts at 7. It will be outside, between the college's library and the Mott Memorial Building.
