A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday, January 19, 2019, and picked headlines from 15 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Repercussions of the arrest of Press TV anchor and journalist Marzieh Hashemi remained a top story today, as several international bodies called for her immediate release. Hashemi was arrested in St Louis on Sunday and was later transferred to a facility in Washington D-C where she said she was mistreated. There is no information about her health condition as of now. Iran has called for her immediate and unconditional release, saying the detention is illegal and against international law.

Also a top story was the sale of oil by Iran and the extension of waivers for Iranian oil purchasers. Papers had different speculations about the exemptions.

The Warsaw Summit and Europeans countries decision to not attend the anti-Iran meeting also received great coverage in today’s papers. Several of them said the project has already failed.
