Blast from the past: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has surprised everyone - even Iran's Supreme Leader - by declaring his candidacy for a third term at the last minute.
By forcing parliament to review a law, the supreme leader has made it clear that he is the real decision-maker and neither parliament nor government can function the way they are supposed to, says Jamshid Barzegar.
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran will bypass "illegal and cruel" US sanctions. However, history shows that skirting sanctions have had catastrophic economic effects for Iran, says DW's Jamshid Barzegar.
The US has indicted a Russian woman for meddling in the upcoming US midterm elections. The woman worked for a company that had already been indicted for its alleged role in influencing the 2016 presidential elections.
The spies allegedly targeted computers belonging to the Democratic Party and its 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. The charges were issued as part of a wider probe into US President Donald Trump.
