How to post a news item:
* If you are a registered user, go to:
* SUPER TITLE: Write your own headline.
Example: rare books are a steal
* TITLE: Copy/paste original news headline.
Example: Iranian is quizzed on theft
* Link to Original Story URL: Copy/paste web address of the news item.
* EXCERPT: Copy/paste the most important part of the news item.
Example: An Iranian businessman has been arrested for allegedly stealing rare books and prints from the British Library. Farhad Hakimzadeh, 49, was escorted from his £350,000 flat in Knightsbridge, West London, and questioned by detectives at Camden police station.
* Short News Comment: Write initial comments about this news item.
Example: I had heard about this case a few months ago. I don’t know Hakimzadeh but his Iran Heritage Foundation in London has done so much quality cultural work in recent years. I just hope none of this is true. The news is very strange. I mean, how could someone simply walk away with so many valuable manuscripts and not expect to be caught? Unless you really really want to be caught. I would love to know what Hakimzadeh has said in his defense.
