A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 11

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 25 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in most newspapers on Saturday was the death of Habib Mohebian, the famous Iranian singer and composer. He was a Los Angeles-based artist for many years, but moved back to Iran a few years ago in the hope that he could resume legal performances in his homeland. However, he was never given the permission to release an album or hold a concert, mainly because of his work in America.

Iranian media also covered a recent statement by the United Nations’ Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in which he admitted that the UN had removed Saudi Arabia’s name from a blacklist because of Riyadh’s threat of cutting its aid.
