Tehran asks all 11 staff to hand back press cards after agency describes martial artists as assassins
Such nonsense. Not the Reuters story, about which I couldn't care less, but the petty mindedness of the Iranian regime. For a country that, along with Israel, incarcerates the highest number of journalists in the world, this false indignation against Reuters really takes the biscuit.

Not at all. "Insulting Turkishness" is probably up there with "weakening the national sentiment" as the most ridiculous of charges a regime can trump up.
