Iran: pressure August 9, 2012

Human Rights Activists reported Tuesday that security forces in Khuzestan province 19 Iranian Arabs from the sunni minority had arrested. According to the organization it is common practice for the security forces to round up citizens with Sunni Arab backgrounds ahead of Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan.

Media Wednesday reported that the 48 Iranian hostages in Syria all travelled to Damascus with the help of a travel agency owned by the elite Revolutionary Guards Corps.Contrary to Tehran’s claims that they are simply pilgrims, they have strong ties to the Guards.
They travelled in six buses from Tehran to Damascus when the last bus in the convoy was stopped at a checkpoint set up by the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
An employee of the tour agency told that everyone on this trip was either a Guard or a Basij.

190 Iranian political and human rights activists, and media personalities wrote a letter to secretary-general Ban-ki-Moon to urge him to take “practical steps” for the release of political prisoners in Iran.

In recent days were different Iranian websites hacked, among them the site of Tehran watercompany. The attacks are to protest against Iran's nuclear plans.


In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

Children are being hanged to death.

A child will be hanged to death.
