Iran’s reformist newspaper “Ebtekar” has been banned by the Iranian government for “spreading lies,” the third such publication to be closed by authorities in recent months, Radio Free Europe has reported. The ban was imposed because of an erroneous headline saying the prison chief was dismissed but, in fact, he had been promoted to another post. In October 2013, Bahar, another reformist newspaper, was closed down over an article seen by critics as questioning Shiite beliefs, while last February, the reformist daily Aseman was banned for publishing an article allegedly insulting to Islam.
