Iran arrests 10 leaders of reformist groups

At least 10 leaders of two Iranian reformist groups who backed defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi have been arrested, an official from one group told AFP on Sunday.

“At least 10 members of the Islamic Iran Participation Front and the Islamic Revolution Mujahedeen Organisation were arrested yesterday,” said Rajab Ali Mazroei, a member of the front.

The groups had given their staunch backing to Mousavi in Friday’s disputed presidential poll which the former prime minister lost to incumbent hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
