The report gave no further details about the closure of Hayate No.

The Press Supervisory Board also banned Iran's leading business daily Sarmayeh last month.

Sarmayeh's license was revoked due to 'repeated violations' of Iran's press laws, according to a statement issued by the media section of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.

The paper, owned by former Tehran Stock Exchange director general Mohammad Hossein Abdo-Tabrizi, was closed after publishing 1,151 issues.
