Members of a moderate Iranian
presidential candidate's campaign team were arrested on
Saturday, an opposition website said, after a rally in which he
criticized heightened security measures in the country.
Supporters of Hassan Rohani also shouted slogans in support
of detained opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi at the rally in
Tehran, according to a video of the event posted on YouTube.
's criticism could be seen as potentially inflammatory
before the June 14 election which authorities hope to tightly
control, eager to prevent a repeat of the mass protests after
the 2009 poll.
Those protests by the opposition "Green Movement
what they saw as a fraudulent win for conservative President
were crushed by security forces.
Mousavi, his wife, and fellow reformist Mehdi Karoubi
been under house arrest for over two years. Many activists have
been jailed or have left Iran.
