A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 8

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Almost all newspapers today covered the US elections and the distance between the two candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in different states.

The remarks made by Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani in the Press Exhibition in criticism of President Hassan Rouhani’s statements also received great coverage.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to Lebanon and his meeting with Lebanese officials were also a top story.
