(Alireza Taheri) Closed IRNA Daily to Resume, Reformist Daily Bonyan Remains Closed * A day after the Islamic Republic Judiciary closed down two popular newspapers "Iran" and "Bonyan," it was announced that the daily Iran, organ of the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), would resume publishing tomorrow. However, the "temporary" closing of the reformist daily Bonyan appears to be indefinite. Shadi Sadr, a Bonyan reporter, tells RFE/RL that the true reason for the closing of the paper was not clearly announced. She says the closing of Bonyan signifies the defeat of the moderate branch of the reformist faction. She attributes shutting down of Bonyan to the topics discussed in the paper's articles, particularly about relations with the US and the regime's policy vis-…-vis the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She adds that after the wholesale newspaper shut downs of the last two years, the public has lost confidence in the credibility of remaining newspapers. (Mehdi Khalaji) Reformist Cleric Ahmad Qabel Released on Bail * Hadi Qabel, brother Ahmad Qabel, tells RFE/RL that the judiciary told his brother's wife last week to put up 300 million rials as bail in order to gain the release of her husband.

Last week, a mysterious court held in Tehran's airport sentenced Pourzand to eight years in prison. Kar tells RFE/RL that she hopes her husband would reconsider his decision not to appeal the verdict. She says the intelligence ministry, which is the judiciary's enforcement arm in matters of national security, has no involvement in the arrest and trial of her husband. Pourzand was kidnapped by unidentified men from the front of his sister's home in Tehran four months ago. (Amir-Mosaddegh Katouzian) Egyptian Journalist Predicts Victory for Reformers in Iran's Domestic Conflict * Iranian affairs expert Khaled Salah, political editor of the Egyptian weekly, al-Ahram-ol-Arabi, tells RFE/RL that the sentencing of Siamak Pourzand shows that realities in Iran are different from the government's claims about democracy.

Victory in this conflict, he predicts, will be with the journalists.

Kardovani says the regime escalated pressures against journalists and political activists due to its increased fear of people's power. (Jean Khakzad, Paris) Khatami's Emergency Plan to Fight Joblessness * President Khatami says he is working on an emergency plan to quickly create hundreds of thousands of jobs. He declines to give details of his plan in order to avoid the appearance of making false promises. The number of jobless in Iran is nearing five million and will surpass six million, or 27 percent of the workforce, by the end of the Third Five-Year Development Plan in 2005. Khatami talks about the need to create at least one million jobs per year, but can his emergency plan respond to this pressing need?

The six drowned yesterday when a small rowboat carrying 17 students, their teacher and the boatman capsized. The city government blames the park's private maintenance contractor, but the company officials say they had taken over the project only a day before the incident. City council officials cite the lack of safety equipment in the park and the irregular arrangement with the contractor as factors contributing to the tragedy. Tehran-based journalist Roya Maleki tells RFE/RL that since school officials paid only half of the fare per child asked by the boatman, he piled 15 students and their teacher into a boat with capacity of only seven.
