Pro-Khatami Sites Censored

Unspecified Iranian authorities are blocking two pro-Khatami web sites:
"Iranian authorities have blocked two websites promoting the presidential bid of Mohammad Khatami, reformists said on Saturday, in a first sign that powerful hardliners might seek to thwart his challenge to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the June 12 election...

"Yaari News, which Shojaei runs with other Khatami supporters, has reported on his candidacy, the reformist's views and growing support for his presidential bid. The other targeted website presented people's views on Khatami's candidacy.

"Shojaei said the government was also likely to have been angered after the sites reported that provincial officials abused people into attend a rally where Ahmadinejad was speaking in the city of Yazd on Wednesday."
