English2

According to an article by Ali Akbar Dareini posted on the Montreal Gazette on January 28th 2013, 14 journalists were arrested in Iran due to alleged co-operation with foreign-based media organizations. Not only this article but also a few more exist where other reporters/journalists got arrested for co-operating with other media organizations. Iran has very strict measures concerning Persian-language media to the measure of having banned it from its population.
