leave a comment »

The Guardian reports that 12 students were killed today in Iran, though the number is expected to rise as more information becomes available and with the new okay from Ahmadinejad to fire on protesters and pro-Mousavi supporters.

There are also reports that of the 16 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRCG) arrested today, 3 were veterans of the Iran-Iraq war (Mousavi’s potential allies). All 16 were arrested after trying to persuade elements of the Army to intervene on the protester’s behalf. They have reportedly been taken to an undisclosed location in East Tehran.
