The head of the German-Iranian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Dagmar von Bohnstein, talks about everyday life in Tehran amid US sanctions, the internet shutdown and opportunities for the Iranian economy.
The internet began to be switched back on in Iran after a shutdown that lasted several days. A prominent cleric also said that protesters who were disputing a hike in gasoline price should be "put to death."
Many Iranian journalists working for foreign media outlets say officials back home are harassing their family members in an attempt to silence critical reporting from abroad. DW spoke to some of the affected journalists.
The protests in Iran following the tripling of fuel prices are arguably the most significant in the 40-year history of the Islamic republic. They could be a harbinger of things to come, writes Ali Fathollah-Nejad.
Iranian authorities imposed a nationwide internet blockade after a hike in fuel prices prompted deadly riots throughout the country. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei defended the move and blamed Iran's "enemies" for the violence.
