Iranian security forces attack protesters says opposition website | Ya Libnan | World News Live from Lebanon: "Iran’s opposition website Sahamnews said security forces attacked pro-reform demonstrators gathering in Tehran on Sunday to mark the anniversary of the country’s 2009 disputed election.
“Security forces attacked the crowd with electric batons … in the Vali-e Asr street to disperse the demonstrators,” Sahamnews said.
Witnesses said thousands of security personnel were deployed in Tehran to stop any revival of anti-government protests that followed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s controversial re-election in 2009.
Opposition websites had called for a “silent rally” to mark the vote, which reformists say was rigged to secure the hardline president’s win. Authorities say the election was the most legitimate since Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution."
