The post-election turmoil in Iran has hardened the determination of various sides. Responding to massive opposition protests, the regime and its supporters have cracked down hard, with arrests, beatings, and killings. Despite admissions of some irregularities, Iran’s Guardian Council, and its supreme leader Ayatollah Khameini have tried to close the door to dissent, claiming in part that protests against the election results were being guided from outside the country. And, they have particularly targeted journalists with implicit threats to their safety. As a result, several foreign journalists doing important work have left the country in recent days, monitoring developments from abroad. To examine what has happened on the ground, what is going on now, and how their distance might affect reporting, AMEJA has assembled a panel of journalists who left Iran in the last few days.
