Most Iranian newspapers dedicated part of their front pages to images of mourning functions attended by people from different walks of life in the build-up to the climax of ceremonies marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Another highlight was one such service with Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in attendance.
News of a November 9 meeting between representatives of Iran, the US and the EU in Oman found its way onto the front pages of several newspapers. Also in the news were a warning by the health minister to physicians who charge fees in excess of the Health Ministry tariffs and comments by the Supreme Leader’s advisor on nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1.
