Iran Begins Trial of Postelection Protesters - Iran | Map | News - FOXNews.com
TEHRAN, Iran — Opposition political activists and protesters are in court in Tehran Saturday on charges of rioting and conspiring against the ruling system in the country's first trial following the disputed presidential election, Iran's state media reported.
The trial underlines the government's efforts to bring a close to anti-government demonstrations that have persisted since the disputed June 12 presidential elections.
Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched in days of street protests after the election, denouncing official results that declared President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the winner.
Iran's opposition maintains Ahmadinejad stole the vote from opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi by engaging in massive fraud, but its demonstrations have been ruthlessly suppressed leaving hundreds, possibly more, in prison.
So where is the World on this huh, I know gone on Holiday nothing to see here folks move along.
I'm guessing that ask by the press to make a comment Mr. Obama will sya its an internal thing of Iran and he doesn't want to meddle.
