Iran arrests journalists for working with regime opponents, foreign news outlets

Iranian authorities have arrested several journalists, including the editor-in-chief of a leading reformist newspaper, on accusations of collaborating with the regime's opponents and working for foreign news organizations.

Acting on a court-issued warrant, security officers detained several journalists at their work places Sunday, the semi-official Mehr News Agency reported. The publications raided by officials included the newspapers Etemaad, Bahar, Arman and Shargh, it said.

    What good news ever comes out of Iran these decades? It's always like getting picture postcards from Hell since they pulled off their religious revolution.

      There hasn't been peace there in years.
      I doubt there ever will be.
