A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on January 29

Iran Front Page- IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, January 29, and picked headlines from 10 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all newspapers today was the heavy and rare snow that hit Tehran and the nearby provinces during the past couple of days. Several papers, particularly the conservative ones, criticized the government and Tehran’s municipality, both run by reformists, for being surprised by the snowfall and showing weak performance.

Also a top story was the Parliament’s rejection of the framework of the budget proposed by President Hassan Rouhani for the next fiscal year, which was unprecedented in the history of the Islamic Republic.

The deadly terrorist attack on the Afghan capital of Kabul, which killed and wounded dozens of people, also remained a top story today.
