Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 23 them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today covered the government’s reaction, particularly those of Central Bank and Intelligence Ministry, to the Judiciary Chief’s comments about the case of Babak Zanjani, the imprisoned billionaire who has failed to reimburse his debts to Oil Ministry.

A decision by Iranian Parliament to ban doctors working for the government from working in private sector also received great coverage.

The US-Russia conflict also continued to be covered by Iranian media, with several papers focusing on Washington’s claims that Russian President has ordered the hacking of US elections.
