Iranians Rally to Slam Tehran Riots

The demonstrators rallying after the Friday Prayers across the country called for the arrest and trial of defeated presidential candidates Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi for provoking the riots. They chanted slogans against the leaders of the sedition movement for their role in instigating the anti-government riots in Iran. The demonstrators also condemned the US for interfering in their country's internal affairs by supporting the Monday's riots. Iran's Vice-President for Parliamentary Affairs Hojjatoleslam Mir-Tajjedini said on Friday that the people cleared their stance vis-à-vis the sedition leaders by calling for their trials. The riots have drawn widespread condemnation from Iranian officials, lawmakers, and the people. Similar demonstrations were held in other Iranian cities, including Arak in Markazi province and the provincial capital of Ardabil. In Iran 'sedition movement' is used in reference to the unrest following the 2009 presidential elections where despite the government's assurances of the vote's transparency, rioting continued in the country, especially in the capital, Tehran.
