ran's security forces fired teargas and clashed with opposition supporters in Tehran on Tuesday, where demonstrators were rallying to demand the release of two opposition leaders, according to an opposition website.The mullahs and Ahmadinejad are hoping to thwart a repeat of the deadly riots that ensued following the disputed elections that kept Ahmadinejad as president. Once again, they're using security forces and the Basiji to do their dirty work.
"Security forces and people in civilian clothes clashed with demonstrators in Tehran to disperse them," opposition website Kaleme reported.
Sahamnews, another opposition website, reported large numbers of security personnel stationed at main streets and squares in Tehran "to prevent gathering of opposition supporters."
There's confusion over the fate of opposition leaders. The regime denies that the leaders, including Mirhussein Mousavi are under arrest, but they're essentially under house arrest.
