Plugging Our New Iran Coverage

Two new RFE/RL blogs to bring to your attention.

With Iran's presidential election two weeks away, we’ve launched an Iran Election Diary featuring the twists and turns of the campaign's final stages.

And as a new and ongoing feature, we've launched Persian Letters, which offers a window into Iranian life by translating and showcasing the works of Persian-language bloggers.

Through their voices -- from clerics, to anarchists, feminists, or bus drivers -- we hope to sample the electronic dialogue going on within a society that is tough to characterize and often contradictory, but always interesting.

The name recognizes RFE/RL's role as a surrogate broadcaster to places without free media. You can write us at
