iranian newspapers

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, July 16, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story today was the death of Maryam Mirzakhani, the Iranian math genius, who died of cancer at the age of 40. Almost all newspapers, expect for a couple of them, covered her demise in their front pages using various photos and pictures of the world’s only female Fields medallist.

Iran’s gas deal with the French energy giant Total continued to spark controversy. This time, the documents Kayhan revealed of the bribes Total had allegedly paid to Iran’s oil ministry became the top story. Reformist and pro-government papers say the documents are the ones released by the US Department of Justice, but Kayhan and Javan claim they are definitely true.

Newspapers also continued to cover the remarks and discussions about the formation of President Hassan Rouhani’s next cabinet. A meeting between Rouhani and reformist figures on the cabinet line-up was particularly highlighted today.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
