All foreign reporters may be expelled from Iran within days, Paris-based Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-Francois Julliard said on Monday. According to Julliard, there is a "real will to make foreign journalists leave" in Iran. He also expressed concern about recent arrests of reporters in the country. Reporters Without Borders says there are 34 journalists currently jailed in Iran, 24 of whom were detained since the post-election protests began.
