Authorities in Iran have announced sweeping new curbs on foreign media operating in the country, effectively confining journalists to their offices.

Heavy restrictions have been placed on the BBC and other news organisations. Reporters are not allowed to cover unauthorised gatherings in the streets or move around freely in Tehran, but there are no controls over what they can say.

The BBC's Jon Leyne spoke about the clampdown while already under the restrictions imposed by the Iranian authorities.
