Mousavi's Wife: Iran Under 'Martial Law'

Things continue to worsen in Iran: Zahra Rahnavard, the feminist leader and wife of Mir Hossein Mousavi, defended her husband’s supporters’ right to protest, and said it was “as if martial law has been imposed in the streets.” The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, "On the current situation, I was insisting and will insist on implementation of the law. … For sure, neither the system nor the people will give in to pressures at any price." Meanwhile, The Huffington Post's Nico Pitney reports on a violent protest in Baharestan Square, where apparently about 5,000 demonstrators have been attacked by police. Gunshots have been heard and police beatings have been reported.
