Iran has reportedly blocked access to three reformist publication websites.
The three sites could not be accessed Monday. However, a protest letter signed by Mohammed Reza Khatami, the head of the reformist Islamic Iran Participation Front, was posted on one of the sites - Rouydad. The party chief is the brother of reformist President Mohammed Khatami.
The two other blocked websites are Emrouz and Bamdad.
Iran's hardline judiciary has closed more than 100 reformist publications and arrested scores of journalists since 2000. The crackdown has triggered protests from press advocacy groups and foreign governments.
