    Author Information
    STUART WILLIAMS is a British journalist specializing in financial and current affairs. A graduate in German and Russian from Worcester College, Oxford, he has worked in Frankfurt as bureau chief for AFX News and as a senior editor for Agence France Presse (AFP) for Europe and Africa in Paris, and for the Middle East in Cyprus. He has covered elections and militant attacks in Russia from Moscow, and Israel's war against Hezbollah in summer 2006 from Beirut. Stuart first traveled around Iran as a tourist after leaving university and was immediately entranced by a country that appeared so different from its image abroad. Having attempted to learn a serviceable Persian, he now works for AFP in Tehran.
