Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, and picked headlines from 15 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Several papers today covered the surprising resignation of US Envoy to the UN Nikki Haley, which was later accepted by US President Donald Trump.

Also a top story was the threatening messages Iranian lawmakers recently received over their decision on a convention on Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT). They particularly highlighted Vice-Speaker Ali Motahari’s request from the Judiciary to prosecute those behind the messages.

Comments by Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri about the country’s drone industry and defensive capabilities also received great coverage.
