We call for the immediate release of Jahani and Saidpour.”Jahani, who is the correspondent of the Turkish news agency Euphrat in the northwestern city of Mahabad, was summoned on 27 November to the local prosecutor’s office where he was immediately arrested on the city prosecutor’s orders for writing critical articles that were published in the foreign press. Jahani also belongs to an organisation founded by fellow journalist Mohammad Sedigh Kabovand that defends human rights in the Kurdish part of Iran.Jahani’s wife told Reporters Without Borders that he went on hunger strike after refusing to pay of bail of 5 million tumen (about 4,000 euros) in protest against the arbitrary nature of his arrest. He is currently held in Mahabad prison.Saidpour was arrested on 28 November and the national weekly he edits, Sepass (“Thanks”), was closed for an alleged “ethnic insult” in one of the answers to the crossword in the latest issue that was considered offensive by the inhabitants of the southwestern province of Lorestan. In an attempt to defuse tension as students staged protests against the newspaper, the Press Surveillance Commission ordered its closure and the Tehran prosecutor issued a warrant for Saidpour’s arrest. He is reportedly being held in Tehran’s Evin prison.Five pro-reform and independent weeklies in the northwestern province of Zandijan – Payam-e Zanjan, Bahar-e Zanjan, Seda-ye Zanjan, Alborz-e Khorram and Mowj-e Bidari – meanwhile announced in a joint statement that they have decided to suspend publication in protest against the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad government’s repressive policies towards the media, above all the restrictions and judicial harassment.

Rhythm eludes USC in home loss

first_imgIf the USC men’s basketball team’s first test of the season was Sunday’s game against Nebraska, then the players and coaches probably were not content with their grade.The Trojans struggled to find an offensive rhythm throughout the game and missed altogether when senior forward Marcus Johnson airballed a 3-pointer as time expired in USC’s 51-48 loss at the Galen Center.Nebraska guard Eshaunte Jones gave the Cornhuskers the final edge in the tightly contested game when the redshirt freshman’s 3-pointer broke the tie with 11.7 seconds left.The Trojans (2-2) led late but saw Nebraska cut the deficit, courtesy of senior guard Ryan Anderson, who had 14 points.Redshirt junior forward Alex Stepheson led USC with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Senior guard Dwight Lewis had 10 points, but only shot 2-of-9 from the field.Despite holding a 38-27 rebounding advantage over the Huskers, the Trojans were haunted by poor shooting and turnovers. USC only made 38.5 percent of its shots from the field and gave the ball away 17 times.The Trojans also struggled at the line, converting just 13 of their 24 free-throw attempts.Sunday’s loss marked the end of USC’s four-game homestand to start the season. The Trojans will hit the road next to face No. 2 Texas on Thursday and No. 23 Georgia Tech on Saturday.last_img read more
