The tragic explosion in a coal mine near the northeastern city of Azadshahr in Golestan province was the story today. Labour Minister Ali Rabiei says at least 35 miners have lost their lives, and efforts are underway to rescue the trapped workers or recover the bodies.

The second presidential debate due to be held on Friday also received great coverage. Many newspapers discussed whether the debate will once involve a clash between Rouhani and Qalibaf.
