Iranian police have arrested a woman journalist who covered parliament for pro-reform media on orders from the conservative-controlled judiciary, the pro-reform Sharq newspaper reported Thursday.
"Saba Azarpeyk was arrested yesterday (Wednesday) morning at her home," the daily said, adding that the grounds for her arrest were not immediately clear.
She reported on parliament for several pro-reform outlets, including the prominent Etemad newspaper.
She was among 18 journalists for reformist media who were arrested in January 2013 for allegedly working for the Farsi-language services of foreign media deemed hostile by the authorities.
President Hassan Rouhani, a self-declared moderate, has promised greater tolerance on social, cultural and media issues -- a pledge that helped him defeat conservatives in last June's election.
But the fledgling opening has been opposed by traditionalists and ultra-conservatives who hold sway over several key institutions.
Conservative newspapers as well as reformist ones have faced temporary bans from the conservative-controlled judiciary since Rouhani took office but three pro-reform titles are under continuing bans.
