Najafabad's Bazaar shut down

The people of Najafabad (in the central province of Isfahan) have closed down their shops and the city's bazaar is totally closed in protest to the suppression of dissident clergy and theology students and the restrictions imposed on them, reports from Iran say. A large group of people gathered in the bazaar's mosque as an act of protest.

The Pasdaran (Revolutionary Guards), Intelligence Ministry agents and State Security Forces are on alert throughout the city and the situation is reported tense.

Following attacks by the regime's Revolutionary Guards and intelligence forces on the home and office of Hossein-Ali Montazeri, Khomeini's former successor, his hometown, Najaf-Abad, has been the scene of widespread protests and sporadic clashes between local residents and the mullahs' repressive forces.
