Protesters to stand trial in Iran
Tehran Police Chief Hossein Sajedinia told the Mehr news agency today that 100 people who picketed in front of Iranian opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi's home will stand trial.
"These individuals have not yet been arrested," Sajedinia said, adding that the court must issue a warrant for their arrest.
In early September, a group of picketers gathered outside Karroubi's house. Karroubi is a major Iranian opposition leader and the general secretary of the Etimad-e Milli party.
"Over five days, these protesters nearly besieged his house," he said. "The protesters smashed his windows and let tear gas into the home."
