TEHRAN, Aug. 1 -- More than 100 political activists and protesters went on trial Saturday on charges of rioting and conspiring to topple the government in the turmoil surrounding Iran's presidential election, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported.h/t to Joe Sudbay at Americablog
The defendants included several prominent politicians -- former members of parliament, first-generation revolutionaries and an ex-vice president -- who have been locked in a decades-long power struggle with Iran's hard-line clerics and Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Only state media were allowed to attend the closed trial, which took place days before the date of Ahmadinejad's second inauguration.
Let us continue to pray for the People of Iran.
