Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Sunday covered the order by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to pardon or commute the sentences of 750 prisoners on the occasion of Imam Reza’s birthday anniversary.

They also highlighted the first gold medal bagged by Team Iran in Rio Olympic Games 2016. Kianoosh Rostami, the Iranian weightlifter, was the one who seized the medal.

The remarks by senior conservative figure and a probable presidential candidate Mohammad Reza Bahonar about the house arrest of Iranian opposition figures Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mahdi Karroubi also received great coverage.
