Iran: block

Iran and India resumed their talks about the $7,4 billion gaspipeline.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have caused delay.
There were delays on the IPI pipeline by repeated disputes over prices and transit fees.
Also USA opposes the project and says it is not acceptable while the nuclear argument between Iran and USA continues.
The pipeline is initially to transfer 60 million cubic meters of natural gas per day from Iran to Pakistan and India.

Iran will halt spot fuel exports in first-quarter 2009,as as it looks to meet domestic demand for power generation during winter.
The National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC),which exports around three to four fuel oil cargoes monthly between January and March, will offer spot cargoes only if domestic requirements ease.
They will continue to meet agreements, but spot sales only will be considered if the winter is not severe.
Last year Iran had tu cut back oil exports as the country suffered one of its worst winters.

Iran decided to take additional measures to restrict internet access and crack down "immoral websites" and bloggers.
The Tehran prosecutor Mortazavi said that they set up a special department to deal with Internet crimes.
A team of Internet experts along with two officials will identify and block websites that "do not follow religious principles and are immoral."
With some 20 million people with access to the Internet, Iran is one of the biggest Internet users in the Middle East.
Despite the many blocked websites, blogging is very popular in Iran.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

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