Supporters demonstrate in front of Etemad Melli’s office

Many people have gathered in support for Karroubi in front of the Etemad Melli newspaper’s office. Security forces and Basij militia have also had a heavy presence and there have been reports of clashes. According to eyewitnesses, people were chanting “Death to dictator” and “God is great” and tear gas was used to disperse them.

On Sunday night, Tehran prosecutor, Saeed Mortazavi closed down the newspaper of leading reformist Mehdi Karroubi, who angered hardliners by saying some opposition protesters had been raped in jail, the website of his party said.

“Technical printing problems were the reasons for not distributing the paper (on Monday),” Mortazavi said.
