Iran: Coelho books banned

Brazilian author Paulo Coelho  has published a message on his blog claiming his books have been banned in Iran.

The Brazilian author has not been given the specific reasons for this action. However he has said that he has been using social networks to support Arash Hejazi.

Hejazi is the doctor and translator of Coelho’s books to Farsi, who appeared in the footage of Neda Agha-Soltan’s death during the demonstrations following Iran’s disputed presidential elections.
