ANOTHER IRANIAN BLOGGER IN TROUBLE FOR COVERAGE OF ETHNIC UNREST



Reporters Without Borders express intense worry over the fate of Abed Tavancheh who has been missing since May 26:

"Tavancheh is a courageous blogger who may well have fallen prey to the government’s crackdown on the student pro-democracy movement,” the press freedom organisation said. “His work nonetheless shows that Iranian civil society is dynamic and is resisting government censorship and authoritarianism." . . .

Two other bloggers Arash Sigarshi and Mojtaba Saminejad, are currently in prison in Iran.

Amir Taheri explains "Why some parts of Iran are beyond Ahmadinejad's reach."

Two Azeri reporters are also held without charge.

Worse. Round up reports of protestors' death and much more to be found at Gateway Pundit.
