8 journalists expelled from Iranian hot spot

Eight foreign journalists were confined to their hotel and then expelled from the northwestern city of Tabriz Monday on orders from the local Islamic revolutionary court.

Tabriz was the scene over the weekend of fierce street rioting between rival supporters of Iran's revolutionary leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and the country's dissident religious chief, Ayatollah Kazem Shariat-Madari.

The expulsions coincided with a mounting campaign against British, West German, and American newsmen in Iran, orchestrated by the pro-clergy Tehran press.
