Iran Closes Website Critical Of Ahmadinejad

(RFE/RL) September 23, 2007 -- Iran's judiciary is reported to have shut down the offices of a news website critical of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad.

Mehr news agency reports Baztab, a website close to former Revolutionary Guards chief and former Expediency Council chairman Mohsen Rezai, had been banned in April and is the subject of a legal complaint from the Iranian presidency.

After the April ban it was inaccessible to users inside Iran, but it carried on putting out stories to users outside the Islamic republic.
