Ahvaz City in Khuzestan Province, Iran

Iran Focus

London, 7 Nov - Khuzestan has played a major role in the history of Iran. It was once regarded as a highly prestigious place with two important ports – Khorramshahr and Abadan. It was not just the people of Iran that held Khuzestan with such high regard – it was the whole of the region.

Even before the oil was exploited there, the province was extremely prosperous. Then came the Abadan refinery – one of the largest in the world. Complete more than a century ago, it was a pivotal part of the country’s history and culture.

Iran’s car deaths are no accident

Iran Focus

London, 1 Nov - Roughly 50 people are killed and 650 injured in road traffic accidents every day in Iran, according to the police chief of Khorasan province, but when even the health minister admits that the crash rate in Iran is 100 times the world average, how long can we continue calling these accidents?

Students deprived of education in Iran

Iran Focus

London, 12 Oct - The cost of education and all of the associated costs are preventing many children in the country from ever being able to go to school. Educations costs for families are rising at the same time as their income decreases and the cost of living increases.

Even officials are now admitting that education is becoming more and more out of reach for many families. Officials are calling on the government to take urgent action so that the situation does not get worse.

BTS installation sites

Iran Focus

London, 15 Oct - In the past 20 years, since Iran’s cellular network infrastructure was first installed, the number of Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) has multiplied in line with consumer demand and now they crowd urban skylines, but some fear that the radiation emitting contraptions are a greater risk to human health than anyone imagined before.

Shirin, who wished for her last name to be kept secret, reported that a few months after she and her mother moved into an apartment with a rooftop BTS, her mother began suffering from headaches and fatigue. When they consulted a doctor, they were told to evacuate.

House prices in Tehran

Iran Focus

London, 1 Oct - In the past year, the average cost of buying a house in Tehran has jumped by a massive 74%, according to the Central Bank of Iran. In the past Iranian month (August 21-September 21) alone, residential unit prices have jumped by 9.4%.

The CBI reports that the one square meter of an average unit in Tehran is currently worth around 84,000,000 rials ($2,000, based on Iran’s artificial exchange rate, or $500, based on the global exchange). The latter figure is more relevant in this case, as sellers can’t get cheap dollars based on the government rate.
