Iran Cracks Down Hides Bodies, Arrests Opposition


A number of opposition figures have been arrested in Iran, a day after violent protests in the capital left at least eight people dead.

Those detained include senior aides to opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi.

His nephew Seyed Ali Mousavi was among those killed in Sunday's violence, the worst since June's contested elections.

Family members say they are being prevented from holding his funeral because his body has been taken from the hospital where it was being kept.

The body snatching was predictable.

I'll follow any big developments, but I kinda expect it to simmer down for a few days. One thing though, these protests continue at regular intervals. They'll be back I reckon.

But just for our gratification, here are some Iranians capturing a Basiji yesterday.
