Iran: more

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi said that she opposes the economical sanctions because they have a tremendous impact on the daily life of Iranian population. She also says that the Iranian government was not correct in saying that its nuclear energy program was popular among Iranians.
Many people are concerned about environmental consequences of nuclear reactors, particularly in Iran’s earthquake zones.
There is no public discussion about this issue because the government had banned newspapers from reporting anything but the official position in recent years.

A plane on the route UAE - U.S. yesterday made an emergency landing at the international Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran.One of the passengers on board of the Dubai-Seattle flight had a heart attack and therefore the plane landed in Tehran.
The 52-year-old man was bought to a hospital in Tehran.

Iranian private importers have bought about 50,000 tonnes of feed wheat, despite he economical sanctions. Food shipments are not targeted under Western sanctions aimed at Iran's disputed nuclear programme, but financial measures have frozen Iranian firms out of much of the global banking system, hindering grain buying.
This week Iran faced a shortage of feed for the huge livestock flocks as private importers have been unable to arrange large-scale payments.
Nevertheless, private buyers picked up two feed wheat consignments of 25,000 tonnes for prompt shipment this week.The origin of the grain was unclear, but it was thought likely to be shipped via a Black Sea port.

The physical and psychological health of journalist, former teacher and former editor of Saham News,Mohammad Davari, is deteriorating. An exorbitant bail collateral of $400.000 is set. His family is not able to raise this amount. He was arrested in 2009 after political opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi wrote a letter to head of the Council of Experts reporting the torture of political prisoners inside Kahrizak Detention Center.
Davani was sentenced to 5 years in jail, which was increased to 6 years because he was not able to pay a fine for a teachers protest he attended.

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