Iran's Interior Minister Sadig Mahsuli instructed Tehran's mayor to investigate events in the hostel of the Tehran University, Mehr reported.

Three days ago students staged demonstrations at the hostel of the Tehran University in support for the former presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi. Iranian police attacked the hostel, knocked down doors and inflicted large-size damage to the hostel. Several students were injured and several were arrested during the attack.

The minister ordered to investigate causes and search for the individuals responsible, to determine size of damage, to examine students' complaints and pay compensation for material and moral damage. The minister demanded all governmental agencies to assist with the all afore-said matters.

Thousands of supporters of former presidential candidates Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi rallied in protest to the results of the June 12 presidential elections. The latest developments have claimed lives of 25 people.
