Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

10 Indictments Filed in Iran Over Downing of Ukrainian Plane

Indictments were filed in Iran against 10 officials over the downing of a commercial Ukrainian airplane that killed 176 people.

The indictments were brought Tuesday by the Islamic Republic’s military prosecutor against ““10 of the officials who had a role” in the shooting down of Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752, Al Jazeera reported.

The flight was shot down in January 2020 by two surface-to-air missiles fired from an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) air battery.  The 10 indicted individuals were disciplined, including being fired or demoted, and are set to go on trial soon, prosecutor Gholam Abbas Torki said.
