These Iranians were going to take part in a peaceful and authorized demonstration by thousands of people which was to take place near the site of the G-8 Summit.
Police beat up and illegally arrested hundreds of Iranians who were going to paticipate in this demonstration near Dom Church.
Dozens of people were wounded, some of whom were transferred to hospital.
According to reports from Tehran, in the wake of the 15,000-strong demonstration of Iranians on June 18 against violations of human rights in Iran and the clerical regime's use of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction against the Mojahedin, the Iranian regime asked the Government of Germany to prevent demonstrations by Iranians.
According to these same reports, a 30-man delegation from Germany is presently in Tehran, busy negotiating with the officials of the mullahs' religious, terrorist dictatorship.
