Journalists arrested in Iran

This from CPJ

Alireza Beheshti, the paper's editor-in-chief, told the
Farsi-language service of Deutsche-Welle that the agents, in plain clothes but
armed, rounded up employees and confiscated computers at newspaper's offices in
Haft Tir Square, Tehran. He said the agents claimed to have a judge's warrant
but did not produce it.
The government has blocked Kalameh Sabz from
publishing since June 14, CPJ research shows.
The employees were believed to have been at the offices on Monday evening to
pick up their pay, according to local news reports.

Global Post, a newish website devoted to international news, offers some great reporting on Iran.
