Photo of the Day
Newspapers shut down
An unidentified man reads the last edition of the Farsi daily newspaper
Azad (Free) at a newstand in Tehran Monday April 24, 2000. Only five out
of 17 pro-democracy publications were in print in Iran on Monday, surviving
a hardline crackdown that also saw the imprisonment of two prominent journalists
in the past three days. Azad, which is one of the banned papers was on
sale Monday because the daily had already gone to print before the ban.
