    The Reuters bureau chief in Iran is to appear before a Tehran court in the coming days over an earlier report by the London-based news agency describing female Iranian martial arts students as “assassins,” Press TV reports.

    In a February 16 report, Reuters claimed that “thousands of female ninjas train as Iran's assassins.”

    The Reuters report also accused the Iranian government of training hired murderers, which the court will be addressing as well.

    Judicial sources have told Press TV that Reuters bureau chief Parisa Hafezi will have to respond to the charges.

    Earlier, a number of Iranian students shown in the Reuters video clip filed a lawsuit against the news agency over charges of defamation.

    Iran has suspended the activities of the Reuters office in Tehran over the issue.
