Silence and dissent on Iranian border

Following the street demonstrations in Tehran, the Iranian authorities have expelled and barred some foreign journalists and restricted others to reporting only from the capital.

Little news about the aftermath of the election and the subsequent street demonstrations is coming out of the smaller provincial towns, simply because there is no one there to report it.

But it is still possible to speak to the people who travel from those towns and villages to other places where journalists can work more freely.

One such place is Iraqi Kurdistan, near the Iranian border.

The main street in the town of Suleimaniya is a teeming mass of shops and stalls, selling almost anything you might want to buy, from nuts to vegetables to second-hand mobile phones.

Many of the wares, cosmetics and cheap clothes, come from Iran, but one product that most definitely did not was the whisky.
