Iran's Karroubi Attacked, Son Says
Iranian OPPOSITION leader Mehdi Karroubi was attacked on Thursday night when a group of militiamen broke into his residential building and fired on his bodyguards, according to a family member.
Militia in plainclothes armed with guns and knives shattered windows, broke the front door and set the parking lot on fire by throwing tear gas and a hand grenade over the wall, Mr. Karroubi's son, Mohamad Taghi Karroubi, said by telephone Thursday night. The militia stormed the hallway, shooting in the air as they ran upstairs to Mr. Karroubi's front door, where they engaged in a 90-minute battle with his bodyguards, the younger Mr. Karroubi said.
Mr. Karroubi and his family were holed up in a safe room, away from the windows and gunfire, his son said, but 11 people were injured in the violence, including Mr. Karroubi's head of security, who was taken to the hospital and remains in critical condition. The shooting attack couldn't be independently confirmed…
The attack was carried out by Basij militia under the command of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to Mr. Karroubi's family.
The militia had surrounded Mr. Karroubi's residence for five nights. Videos posted on OPPOSITION websites show the militia breaking windows and splashing paint on his house, while chanting their loyalty to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and saying they are under his command…
Tehran's chief of security forces, Hossein Sajad, told Iranian state media that security forces were put on alert on Thursday because of the 'sensitivity of Quds Day and to identify and arrest troublemakers’.
Internet connections were slow in major Iranian cities and the gmail email service wasn't functioning, according to reports on OPPOSITION websites.
Analysts said the government's security measures and the attacks on Mr. Karroubi showed that the Islamic regime is still intimidated by the OPPOSITION and fears mass unrest. (WSJ – Sep. 3, 2010)
