PARIS (AP) — Iranian authorities have arrested 23 journalists and bloggers since post-election protests began a week ago, according to a media watchdog that says reporters are a "priority target" for Iran's leadership.
Among those arrested was the head of the Association of Iranian Journalists, Reporters Without Borders said Sunday.
"It's becoming more and more problematic for journalists," said Benoit Hervieu of the Paris-based group, also known by its French acronym RSF.
