Press Crackdown in Iran

Rogene Fisher writes:

Update | 1:50 p.m. The number of reporters arrested since the June 12 election has risen to at least 24. The Lede has learned that Newsweek reporter Maziar Bahari was arrested without charge on Sunday morning in Tehran, and has not been heard from since. Mr. Bahari, a Canadian citizen, has been living in and covering Iran for the past decade. Her most recent article for Newsweek examined opposition supporters’ concerns that pro-Ahmadinejad groups were staging violent incidents at their rallies to undermine support for their movement.
