WASHINGTON  — A group of US senators from both major parties is urging US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to press for a United Nations human rights monitor on Iran.

The lawmakers say that human rights have deteriorated since the authority for a UN monitor on rights issues in Iran lapsed in 2002.The letter says that human rights conditions are deteriorating "with the Iranian government's ongoing campaign of systematic repression and intimidation aimed at silencing dissent."



It was signed by Democrats Carl Levin and Edward Kaufmann, Republicans Jon Kyl, John McCain and Lindsey Graham and independent Joseph Lieberman.
