AIDS story
results in ban for Iranian journalist

An Iranian journalist who wrote an article titled "Let's Make AIDS Public" in the Tamadon-e Hormozgan weekly newspaper has been banned by an Iranian court from working as a reporter for five years for attempting to "spread vice" with the story, Agence France-Presse reports. Reporter Elham Afrootan was acquitted of more serious charges of insulting the late Islamic leader Ayatollah Khomeini. The manager of the weekly newspaper was sentenced in April to 20 months in prison for allowing the article to be published. The newspaper also was shut down by the Iranian court. (The Advocate)
