A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on January 3

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, January 3, and picked headlines from 12 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Almost all headlines on Wednesday were also dedicated to the most recent developments in Iran, including the protest rallies and ensuing riots across the country.

Several Iranian cities have been the scene of anti-government street protests in recent days. The early protests demanded a better economic situation and better living conditions, but sporadic violence has erupted during the protests, causing at least 21 fatalities and tens of injuries. Officials believe the riots are being fuelled by foreign countries including Saudi Arabia, the US, and Israel.
