Iran Arrests Opposition Leaders After Calls for Protest

Iran’s opposition leaders Mehdi Karrubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who had been under forced seclusion at home, were transferred to a Tehran prison, as supporters prepared to hold a rally tomorrow, the opposition Kaleme website said.

Mousavi and Karrubi, along with their wives, were “arrested and taken to Heshmatiyeh prison in Tehran,” Kaleme said on its website, which cited neighbors for some of the details.
