Iran Lifts Ban On Leading Reformist Daily

March 11, 2007 -- Iranian authorities have lifted a ban on the "Shargh" newspaper, the country's best-selling reformist daily until it was shut down by the country's press watchdog in September.

One of its directors, Mohammad Atrianfar, said today that "'Shargh' will appear again after the Nowruz [new year's] holiday" on March 21.

The paper had a daily circulation of about 100,000.

After a series of warnings, "Shargh" was shut down and accused of blasphemy and of insulting officials.
