Riyadh, Saudi newspapers highlighted in their editorials today a number of topics and issues at local, regional and international arenas.

Al-Yaum newspaper highlighted in its editorial International pressures on Iran, saying that these pressures against the Iranian regime have increased due to its flagrant human rights violations, noting that these pressures condemn the regime's arbitrary practices against protests by Iranian citizens complaining of the country's poor conditions.

The newspaper pointed out that among those pressures were the demand for the release of Iranian-British academic, Abbas Edalat, Professor at the Royal College of London, who was arrested by the Iranian authorities in last April because of his opposition and condemnation of the practices of the repressive regime.
