The top story in all papers today was a tweet by The Guardian’s Iranian correspondent Saeid Kamali Dehghan, in which he said Jamal Khashoggi, the slain Saudi journalist, had been killed for unveiling Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s direct role in financing a UK-based anti-Iran TV channel, Iran International.
Also a top story was the ongoing reactions to the new round of US sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic, particularly a social media campaign launched by a group of Iranian celebrities, urging the people of the world to condemn Trump’s anti-Iran bans.
The second leg of the final match of AFC Champions League between Iran’s Persepolis and Japan’s Kashima Antlers, due to be held in Tehran at 18:30, also received great coverage, as the Iranian capital has prepared itself for the big match.
