Coverage of Paris terror attacks in the Iranian press


The Iranian dailies have given extensive front-page coverage to the deadly coordinated Paris attacks.

The coordinated terror attacks on Friday in Paris were the main story of Iranian newspapers on Sunday (November 15).

Note: IFP has decided not to include Kayhan and Vatan-e Emrooz in its review of the front pages of Iranian dailies today because of the headlines they ran on the terrorist attacks in Paris. Iran Front Page views their headlines as running counter to the esprit de corps of the Iranian nation. To us, this is not censorship.
