Security forces arrest political activists in Shiite mourning ceremony

Security forces raided the home of political activist Hashem Sabaghian arresting him and Hojatel Islam Soleimani. Plainclothes agents on motorcycles and intelligence agents arrested Sabaghian, a member of the Iran Freedom Movement and Soleimani, a member of the Association of Teachers and Researchers of the Qom Seminary School.

These forces attacked Sabaghian’s home today on Tasoa (Shiite religious mourning ceremony) and disrupted the ceremony dispersing the mourners… Notably, Dr. Soleimani was arrested last summer in the Behesht Zahra Cemetery in Tehran. (Jaras Website – Dec. 15, 2010)
