According to RAHANA, an hour ago, a group of people in Sadeqieh Square had a short gathering where they chanted slogans. Later on, the security forces had a very strong presence in this square.
Since this morning, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi have been placed under house arrest, and the security forces have not allowed them to leave their homes.
The Jaras website has reported that moments ago, police forces have also been stationed in Enqelab Square. Meanwhile, the University of Tehran`s security has prevented students from entering the school.
Vali-Asr Square has also been subjected to tight security measures with Special unit forces in green uniform and 20 police vans stationed there.
A RAHANA reporter said that the security forces have been stationed in side streets of Vesal Street and Fariman Street.
In Kargar Shomali street, as well, large numbers of security forces are seen. However, the number of protestors are reported to be larger here than other streets in Tehran.
