Iran: procedure

At least four young people between 16 and 18 years got killed and another two injured when mortars, leftover from the Iran-Iraqwar exploded.
The explosion occurred near Sarpol-Zahab, Kermanshah province, near the Iran-Iraq border.

For the first time have 250,000 visas for Iran been issued electronically.
Since six months tourists can visit the Iranian Foreign Ministry website.
After filling out the application form and the approval they can now receive the visum in less then 72 hrs.
They can choose to receive the visa either at Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport or at an official agency in their home country.

Saturday, September 6th, journalist, member of the One Million Signatures Campaign, and editor of the site of Women in Iran, Jila Baniyagoob appeared for Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran.
She was summoned with the charge with disruption of public order, and refusal to obey the orders of the police.
These charges and the summons were following her arrest on June 13, 2008 with 8 other women after a seminar on the occasion of commemorating the Day of Solidarity of Iranian Women in opposition to legal discrimination was cancelled.

She denied all charges.
Her lawyer, Mina Jafari was prevented from attending the hearing with as reason "the case against your client is a security case As such you are not allowed to be present during the hearing."
After the hearing a bailorder of $55,000 was issued.
Last month, the other four women charged in this case Nafiseh Azade, Farideh Ghaeb, Sarah Loghmani and Aida Saadat, were also issued the same bail order.
The nine women are apart from Jila Baniyaghoob, Nahid Mirhaj, Aida Saatad, Nafiseh Azad, Nasrin Sotoodeh, Farideh Ghaeb, Sarah Loghmani, Jelve Javaheri, and Alieh MotalebZadeh.(Photo)
