ISNA writes that Iran is going to produce the drug Zoledronic acid, while earlier it had to be imported into the country. The drug is used in patients with cancers as well as for treating osteoporosis.
The price for import of such drugs is estimated at 500 EU, while in Iran the same domestically made drug will cost around $100.

The Iranian film "A Separation" Sunday won the Oscar for best foreign language film. It is the first time that an Iranian film wins an Oscar.
The film is about a couple going through a divorce and touches on traditions, justice, and male-female relationships in modern Iran.

She was arrested in January on accusation of cooperating with BBC.
Sahameddin Bourghani and Marzieh Rasouli who also were arrested are still in Evin prison.
