Iran: reason

Two Iranians who were abducted in Afghanistan have been released after a ransom has been paid.
The two men, who are employees of an Iranian constructioncompany from Iran, were abducted August 14, while they were traveling from the western city of Herat to Islam Qala on the border with Iran.
In Afghanistan people are kidnapped, either by the Taliban or by criminal gangs seeking ransom.
According to the provincial criminal investigation's police there had been at least 22 cases of kidnapping for ransom in Herat in the past six months.

Sourena Hashemi, Bahram Vahedi and Ali-Reza Firouzi are banned from registering for university of Zanjan by the disciplinary committee.
The 3 banned students were involved at the sit-in protests in the university in June, which were ignited since the university's vice-president charged with vetting students' conduct tried to sexually harass a female student.
A parliamentarian and the university promised not to pursue any disciplinary or scholastic actions against participating students.
Nevertheless a number of students were arrested and later released on bail.

According to the newspaper Asre Iran former president Khatami's speech has been censored while aired live on state television (IRIB).
ISNA published a different version of the speech on its website, IRIB denied, accusing ISNA of distorting the ex-president’s words.
A tape adresses that IRIB cut off some sentences, bitterly critical of government.
ISNA quotes Khatami as saying it is not right to squander national assets
“in the name of justice”. These last words were pruned by IRIB.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

Children are being hanged to death.
A child will be hanged to death.
