EU's Lady Ashton given 'cover-up' in Iran press
26-Jan-2011 (one comment)

Some newspapers in Iran retouched a photograph of EU foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton to make her outfit less revealing, an Iranian website reports. showed Iranian press pictures of Lady Ashton next to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, with her black top raised higher than in the original.

They had held talks in Istanbul on Iran's controversial nuclear programme.

Iranian papers often retouch images, a BBC Persian Service journalist says.

Cyrus Amini, who worked in Iranian print media in 1998-2003, said the practice was "quite usual and understandable" because of the differences between Western and Iranian culture.
