Iran’s Female Ninjas File a Lawsuit: Not Every Iranian Is Out to Kill Us - Max Fisher - International - The Atlantic
In February, Reuters sent Caren Firouz to photograph an all-women ninjutsu gym in the town of Karaj. His photos (which we also ran) appeared in a slideshow on Reuters’ website. Now, Iranian state-run outlet PressTV says that several of those ninjas are suing Reuters for defamation. The Reuters story, according to PressTV, “accused [the women] of being assassins” whom the state is training “to kill any possible foreign invaders.” There’s no reason to think that these female athletes are actually state-run killers.
