With Iran’s presidential approaching in June 2013, Iranian security forces are engaging in a severe crackdown on journalists and publications, which began in January on a day now referred to as “Black Sunday.” At least 16 journalists have been arrested, without charges, in the months leading up to the presidential election. Due to the authorities’ intense intimidation of the press, three publications closed in March. Many fear the arrests and intimidation will only increase as the election approaches.
