Iran: Top student leader at Tehran University arrested

For pro democracy, anti Mahmoud activities.

Abbas Hakimzadeh, the leader of the Islamic association of students at Tehran's top Amir Kabir university, was arrested Thursday while he was leaving home to attend class. He is one of the organisers of a major public protest last December against president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and is a key leader of the pro-democracy movement of university students which has promoted protests in campuses nationwide against a government crackdown on civil liberties.

About Mahmoud: He's a miracle, crows Justice Minister.
