The toll of attempted assassinations and abductions was made public hours after a London-based Iranian broadcaster announced it had moved operations to the US after mounting safety concerns against its journalists from Tehran.
Last November, armed vehicles were deployed outside the Iran International studios in Chiswick, west London, after “severe and credible” threats were made against two of its UK-based channel’s journalists.
It's a story from last month, but one I learned about from this thread asking questions about the announced Iran-Saudi Arabia rapprochement:
8. How will this deal impact Iran International, the Saudi-supported satellite TV channel that has become the most watched news channel inside Iran? Tehran has been actively trying to assassinate exiled Iranian journalists working for Iran International. https://t.co/x3HsMh2AjF— Karim Sadjadpour (@ksadjadpour) March 10, 2023
