Iran bars journalists

As crowds once again begin to gather in Tehran, the Iranian authorities ban all foreign journalists from firsthand reporting in the streets.
The order issued Tuesday limits journalists for foreign media to work only from their offices, conducting telephone interviews and monitoring official sources such as state television.

....like those phone lines won't be monitored.... meaning their only sources will be official state TV and whatever leaks across the borders.

Interesting Ahmadinejad is out of the country for this. Pro-Ahmadinejad "supporters" are gathering in Vali-ye Asr Square where there will likely be conflicts today.
