A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on December 28

Iran Front Page- Newspapers on Wednesday covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in an address to a group of seminary students. The Leader mainly talked about the December 30, 2009, demonstrations held by a huge crowd of Iranian people in support for the Islamic Establishment, and also highlighted the need for enhancement of Iran’s deterrent power.

Another top story was the widespread reactions to Shahrvand newspaper’s Tuesday report about the homeless people who live inside the graves of a cemetery near Tehran.
