Here is my piece on targeting journalists in Iran for traveling outside in IPS (Inter Press Service) today:

BERKELEY, California, Jan 31 (IPS) - In a new blow to free expression in Iran, security forces arrested three members of a 15-woman delegation of journalists en route to a training workshop in India last week, accusing them of infringing national security interests and threatening them with trial.

After being interrogated at the airport Jan. 25, their passports were confiscated and they were sent to the notorious Evin jail near Tehran.
