Riots in Tehran After Election Results Announced, 50-100 Reported Dead

“After this announcement the people of Tehran took to the streets, only to find blockades already set up and the “moral” private police ready to fight. These cement blockades require heavy machinery and trained drivers in order to set up, which suggests a plan that has been in action for weeks. Thousands are on the streets, some throwing stones at police and police responding by beating them with batons. Fifty to one hundred are already reported dead, and the opposing candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has been put under house arrest.”
