3 Journalists Arrested for 'Security Reasons'

Iran's Prosecutor-General, Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Eje'i, announced that three journalists in Teheran, including one from the Washington Post, had been arrested 'for reasons of security'. This is the first time a reason has been provided since July 22, when the three were originally placed under arrest.

"Three people have been arrested in this case," the Prosecutor-General said, "and as it is a case of security, I am not permitted to discuss it."
