More restrictions for Iranian students

The cabinet plans to refuse entry to Iranian students who want to study subjects which could bring them into contact with information about nuclear technology, foreign affairs minister Maxime Verhagen has told MPs.

Details of the ban will be published shortly, news agency ANP reports.
Twente University has already closed its doors to all students from Iran, arguing it is impossible to keep them away from open lectures.
