A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, and picked headlines from 11 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iranian papers on Wednesday widely covered the shocking case of Mohammad Ali Najafi, the ex-mayor of Tehran and former vice-president who confessed on Tuesday to the murder of his wife Mitra Ostad at her apartment.

Also a top story was the Iranian foreign ministry’s reaction to US President Donald Trump’s softened rhetoric. The foreign ministry’s spokesman said Tehran sees no prospect for talks with the US for now, and that it expects Trump to act rather than talk.
