    Rafsanjani's daughter on trial over press charges

    TEHRAN, Sept 28 (AFP) -Faezeh Hashemi, the daughter of former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, appeared before a court on Monday, accused of publishing "lies" in her newspaper, witnesses said.

    Hashemi, MP and moderate feminist activist, has been sued by several officials including General Mohammad Naqdi, the commander of the intelligence unit of the police forces.

    Naqdi has accused Hashemi's Zan (Women) newspaper of publishing lies after it accused the general of having links with Islamic extremist groups waging a violent campaign against moderates and leftists.

    The paper said recently that it had spotted the general at the scene of an attack launched by vigilates on two leading moderate officials -- Vice President Abdollah Nuri and Culture Minister Ataollah Mohajerani.
