ISNA: Iranian censors act against critics of nuclear deal

DUBAI – Iran’s Press Supervisory Board has suspended a hardline newspaper and cautioned two other outlets for criticising last month’s nuclear deal with world powers – a rare move for a body more used to upholding social conservatism.

The board suspended “9 Dey”, a weekly newspaper that accused Tehran’s negotiators of overstepping Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s red lines in the negotiations, and referred its case to a court, the ISNA news agency reported on Monday. Censors also cautioned “Kayhan”, an influential conservative daily, and the “Raja News” website, in a setback for critics who assert that Iranian negotiators made too many concessions to reach the historic deal on July 14.
