Text size Aa Aa

Four newspapers in Iran have been raided by government security officials and a number of journalists taken into custody.

The semi-official Mehr news agency says the journalists are suspected of co-operating with anti-government Persian-language media organisations outside the country. The arrests come four months ahead of Iran’s presidential election in June.
