Iran moderate daily returns after three-year ban

Iran's leading moderate daily Shargh hit the news stands again on Sunday nearly three years after authorities banned it for publishing an interview with a poet accused of being a lesbian.

The Islamic republic ordered the newspaper's closure in August 2007 over the full-page interview with Saghi Ghahreman, an expatriate Iranian poet living in Canada whom authorities described as "counter-revolutionary."
