"U.N. tightens sanctions on Iran" by Alexandra Olson

A unanimous vote on Saturday by the U.N. Security Council confirmed that additional sanctions will be added against Iran because Iran refuses to stop enriching uranium. The sanctions will hult Iranian arms exports and freeze the assests belonging to 28 people and organizations involved with Iran's nuclear and missile programs.

The challenge in this story is conveying the information the way an average reader could understand. The facts were explained well for a person not involved in or following the stories in Iran could understand.

The Pioneer Press published an article about the sanctions by Colum Lynch. The Pioneer Press's coverage was concise and condensed. Both articles presented the same information, however, the Star Tribune took a more drawn out approach to reporting the story.
