TEHRAN – An Iranian journalist working on the political pages of two reformist dailies has been arrested, his wife told the student news agency ISNA Tuesday.

The report quoted her as saying Rozbeh Mir-Ebrahimi, a writer with the Etemad and banned Jomhuriat papers, “was arrested by people who said they were from the police” on Monday morning.

“They searched the house and asked him questions about his work with different internet sites. They said he would be released soon but so far I have not heard from him and they have given me no reason for his arrest,” Sulmaz Sharifi told ISNA.

Iran’s hardline judiciary has maintained a tough crackdown on the pro-reform press for several years, with scores of papers shut down and journalists frequently detained.
