IFP has taken a look at the front pages of newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The comments of Judiciary Deputy Chief Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei on a wide range of issues, including cases involving Babak Zanjani, who stands accused of corruption, and former vice-president Mohammad Reza Rahimi and the possible prosecution of two presidential candidates who disputed the results of the 2009 vote and thus sparked riots were on the cover of many Iranian dailies on Tuesday. Apprehension of the members of a terrorist cell in the southeast by the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps appeared on the front pages of several newspapers too.
