A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on December 20

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 19 them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey was the top story almost in all newspapers today.

The Charter on Citizens’ Rights unveiled by President Hassan Rouhani on Monday was also widely covered. Reformist and moderate papers said Rouhani has fulfilled its promise, and conservative ones asked him to do something about unemployment and huge salaries given to certain people.

Many papers also covered the ancient ceremony of Yalda Night, which will be observed by Iranian people tonight at the last night of autumn and the longest night of the year.

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