"Six independent filmmakers have been detained in Iran, the BBC said yesterday, describing it as an attempt to pressure the international broadcast network over its coverage of the country’s clerical regime. The BBC said those arrested were Iranian documentary filmmakers, adding that while the BBC’s Farsi-language service had bought the rights to their films in the past, it had not commissioned their work."
