Apparently An Incident Has Occurred in Shiraz.

Two days after the royal visit, the disciplinary agents in Tehran instructed Tehran media not to print any unusual news received from Shiraz. This was a matter of concern in Tehran press gatherings that day, but it has now been revealed that the instructions of the disciplinary agents were merely precautionary and no major incidents had occurred in Shiraz. As there had been concern that a small incident which had occurred in relation to the Baha’i issue in one of the mosques could be reflected differently in Tehran, creating rumours, they used precaution and advised Tehran media to be vigilant and avoid publishing inciting news which could possibly circulate through some questionable sources.
