Blogger Arrested

In the top right corner of this blog you will see some other blogs that I am doing. Some need a lot of work but one into which I put some effort is London Daily Photo. When I began setting up LDP on Blogger I quickly realized that this was not a unique idea --- a picture a day posted from one's hometown. There are bloggers all over the world doing the same thing.

There are a number of sites dedicated to following and publicizing these daily photo blogs and I am a member of some of them. One my favorites is City Daily Photo. I had problems getting my RSS feed to work properly but with the assistance and encouragement of the folks behind the site I got correctly connected.

Today I read an upsetting announcement on City Daily Photo: Amir Sadeghi, who blogs on Word Press, was arrested in Tehran by Iranian Security Forces who took the daily-photo blogger from the office of the Farhang-e-Ashti newspaper. I gather he may have been a journalist at the Iranian paper.

According to City Daily Photo, this brings the number of journalists arrested in Iran to 55.

Other CDP blogs are also publicizing this man's arrest.
