IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian dailies on Saturday and picked headlines from 24 of them.

News about the funeral procession of Ayatollah Mohammad Reza Mahdavi Kani, who passed away in Tehran on Tuesday October 21 after he went into a coma on June 4 due to a major heart attack, appeared on the front pages of most Iranian dailies on Saturday. Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani, who presided over the Assembly of Experts, was laid to rest in the Shah Abdol Azim Shrine in Rey, a town on the southern edge of the capital. The stellar performance of Iranian athletes in the Asian Para Games who finished fourth in the overall standings was also among the top stories of the day. Another story which drew a lot of attention was a final report released by the government about the controversial scholarships granted by the previous government to individuals who did not meet the required standards.
