A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on September 6

IFP – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, September 6, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today covered the controversies over a FIFA World Cup qualifier between Iran and Syria. With a 2-2 draw against Iran, Syria managed to advance to the next round. The major controversy, however, was the Syrian women who were allowed to watch the match in Azadi stadium, while Iranian women were left behind the doors.

Among other top stories today were the end of the Takfiri terrorists’ siege on Syria’s Deir ez-Zor after three years and the continued reactions to an ongoing crisis in the Korean peninsula.

Newspapers also covered the talks between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his counterparts from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey on the plight of Muslim people in Myanmar.
