    Ettela''at (Persian: روزنامهٔ اطلاعات‎) is a Persian language daily newspaper published in Iran. It is among the oldest publications in the country.

    History and profile

    Ettala''at was started in 1926. The circulation of the paper was 15,000 copies during the reign of Reza Shah. The paper has a conservative stance and focuses on political, cultural, social and economic news.

    On 6 January 1978 a slanderous article appeared in Ettela''at suggesting Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was a homosexual and a serving British agent. The next day, clerics in Qom protested and the police demanded they disperse. When they refused, police opened fire and at least twenty people were killed. Iranian media displayed outraged mounting tensions leading up to the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
