Latest news from Iran:

On 27 February 2009 (9 Esfand 1387), in response to a widespread international outcry over reports of the plight of the “Yaran-e Iran”, Ghorban-Ali Dorri-Najafabadi, Iran’s attorney general, criticized the EU and the United States as “outdated Western tactics.” “The West, including the United States, has claimed that Iran has repressed [Baha’is] in violation of human rights law, even though these individuals have accepted their accusations”, he said.

Radio Farda, a radio station and website based in the Czech Republic and Washington, D.C. in the United States, and Radio Zamaneh, an independent Persian language media outlet based in the Netherlands, have reported the news with positive information about the Baha’i Faith.
