Writer Salman Rushdie is still under a death threat from Iran. Today, Iran's official Islamic Propagation Organization announced a "great competition" to mark the sixth year of its fatwa against the novelist-in-hiding for penning "The Satanic Verses," which offended Muslims. Under contest rules, the author of the best short story about Rushdie's "moments of fear and anxiety" will win 10 gold coins. (Second and third place winners get five and three gold coins, respectively.) Entries must be submitted by Apr. 20. It was unclear whether Rushdie himself is eligible.
