Weekly Roundup: Nov.2nd-Nov.9th

November 2nd - November 9th 2018

Dear readers,

Those of you who have had your morning coffee may have noticed that Kayhan Life’s online presence has undergone a powerful transformation. 

In an effort to bring you more of the news you want to read, we’ve updated our site. It is now much easier to access our arts and culture stories, which sit directly below our video reel showcasing the Top Stories of the day. 

As U.S. sanctions ripple across the globe, our Business section keeps you up to date with the latest economic developments, and the Special Reports featured in our Analysis section offer in-depth coverage on decisions affecting Iran and its people. We’ve also launched a Human Rights section, covering child welfare, gender issues, minorities and of course, women’s rights. 

Ba Dorood,

The Kayhan Life Team
