Terror in Iran

Clashes between protestors and police in Iran are again turning deadly.

A number of opposition figures were arrested Monday in the wake of violent nationwide protests a day earlier, Web sites reported, including three top aides to the opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi and the leader of a banned political group, Ibrahim Yazdi.

Mr. Moussavi’s 43-year-old nephew Ali Moussavi was among 10 people reported killed during the protests, becoming another flashpoint in the conflict.

Another opposition leader, Mehdi Karroubi, was among those who lashed out at the authorities for using deadly force during the protests.




Here's the latest from Twitter.

Security forces UNABLE to arrest Mohsen Armin today.

Mohsen Armin is the subject of several tweets. He's an Iranian politician that's been one of the leaders of the opposition.

Here's another video that's raw footage of the violence.

The analysis is mixed. Here's one analyst that believes all of this is still fragmented and disjointed and so ultimately doomed to fail. Here's another that says this is a "tipping point". The situation remains fluid.
