     TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ Iran's culture minister is seeking to
tighten rules to supervise visiting foreign journalists.

     A Wednesday report by the semi-official Mehr news agency quotes
Mohammad Hosseini as saying tighter measures are being sought after
an Israeli journalist reported from Tehran about the 2009
presidential election for a European news outlet.

     Postelection turmoil in 2009 led the government to restrict
access for visiting foreign journalists, many of whom left the
country ahead of schedule.

     Hosseini did not elaborate. He said 200 foreign journalists have
applied to cover June's presidential elections.

     The ministry has a final say on issuing credentials for foreign
journalists seeking coverage of Iran.

     Some 120 foreign media outlets maintain offices in Iran.
