Iran Suspends Reuters

The Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance ordered the staff of Reuters to turn in their media credentials, Thursday, after the news agency published a video of a women's martial arts which contained the headline, "Thousands of female Ninjas train as Iran's assassins."

Reuters corrected the headline to "Three thousand women Ninjas train in Iran." Editor-in-chief Stephen J. Adler said the agency took preventative measures against future recurrences and was in talks with the government to restore the accreditation of its journalists.
