TEHRAN - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's media adviser was arrested on Monday in his office by the judiciary, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported, without giving a reason for his arrest.

"A few minutes ago Ali Akbar Javanfekr was arrested after holding a news conference with local media," Mehr said.

Iranian media reported on Sunday that Javanfekr was sentenced to a year in jail and banned from journalism over a publication which was deemed to have offended public decency.
