Iran on Tuesday banned foreign media journalists from leaving their offices to cover protests on the streets of Tehran following the country’s disputed presidential elections.
The Culture Ministry said journalists could continue to work from their offices but that it was cancelling press accreditation for all foreign media.
“No journalist has permission to report or film or take pictures in the city,” a Culture Ministry official told Reuters.
