Iran: fugacious

Irans saffronexport has fallen down to 5,900kg in the previous two calendarmonths.
Over the same period last year, the export was 20,500 kg.
This is due to the recent drought.
Before the fall in exports, Iran was the provider of nearly half of the saffron imported by Spain, which would then reprocess the product for exports around the world.

New oilresources of more than 10 billion barrels were found in the Masjed Soleimanoilfield in South West of Iran.
The oilfield was tapped for the first time 100 years ago.
The head of the Research and Development Center at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) said that without modern technologies such amount of oilresources could not have been found.
According to him this discovery shows that the earlier assessments about Iran's oil resources should be revised.

Iran builds the sixth cross-country gas pipeline to transfer sweetened gas in phases 9 and 10 of the South Pars field.
The gas is for the provinces of Khuzestan and Bushehr and it also raises the prospect of Iran beginning gas exports to Kuwait.
The 492km pipeline has the capacity to carry 110 million cubic meters of sweet gas per day.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

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