A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 5

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, January 2, and picked headlines from 16 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Tuesday continued to cover the recent protest rallies and ensuing riots across Iran. The protests, which started in the religious cities of Mashhad and Qom on Thursday, mainly focused on economic grievances, particularly the surge in prices and the financial corruption of certain state bodies.
