Iranian MPs Urge Int'l Bodies to Condemn Massacre of Muslims in Regional States

Head of the parliament's Human Rights Committee Zohreh Elahian told FNA that the committee has sent a letter of protest to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and asked him to "avoid keeping mum" about the status quo in the regional countries.

"In the letter, the parliament's human rights committee declared the Islamic Republic of Iran's protest at the international community's silence about the violation of the rights of the Muslims nations in the region," Elahian noted.

She stressed that the Iranian parliament cannot keep mum about the massacre of the Muslims in Libya, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and other countries since the Iranian nation and its government attach much importance to the people's rights.

Also in a separate letter to the Head of the UN Human Rights Council last week, the Iranian Parliament's Human Rights Committee strongly condemned the recent massacre of protesters in Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Libya, and called for the trial of all those involved in violent acts and massacre of the people.

In the letter, the committee voiced Iran's strong protest at the massacre of demonstrators in Libya by fighter jets and similar violent acts in Bahrain, Yemen and Egypt.

Meantime, thousands of Bahrainis took to the street Tuesday in an anti-regime protest heading to Pearl Square, the focal point of demonstrations for over two weeks.

The unrest in the small Persian Gulf state is part of a wave of protests that have rippled across North Africa and the Middle-East since the revolutions that ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidin Ben Ali and his Egyptian counterpart Hosni Mubarak.

Protesters in the Shiite-majority kingdom which is ruled by the Sunni al-Khalifa dynasty have been calling for the fall of the regime.
