In the latest edition of the BBC's internal Newsgathering magazine, Jim Muir reflects on the everyday turmoils of working as a journalist in Iran:

"Tehran: It's not so much the evil machinations of sinister mullahs, but crap technology, defective infrastructure, chaotic organisation and dead-hand bureaucracy that conspire.

"And fate, which robbed us of our much-loved cameraman Kaveh Golestan in an Iraqi minefield in April. We soldier on, but there's not a day that we don't remember and miss him."
