A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on Oct. 15

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian dailies on Wednesday and picked headlines from 19 of them.

The comments of Intelligence Minister Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi about a wide range of issues such as the ministry’s priorities and the close eye it keeps on IS-affiliated elements dominated the front pages of Iranian dailies on Wednesday. Another story that drew a lot of attention in the newspapers was the resumption of talks between Iran’s Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU’s Catherine Ashton in Vienna. Comments by President Rouhani in a televised interview late Monday also continued to capture front-page headlines.
