Iran arrests more than 10 mourners in memorial ceremony for slain daughter of opposition figure

Following a call by activists to hold a memorial service for Haleh Sahabi outside of the Hosseinieh Ershad [in Tehran], eyewitnesses said that security forces with cameras were stationed in all the streets leading the Hosseinieh Ershad, filming the events and people and that they had created an atmosphere of fear among the people.

According to this report, 10-15 women intending to participate in the service who were mostly between the ages of 40 to 60 were also arrested. (Jaras website – Jun. 4, 2011)
