'Heads, Middle, And Lower Part Of The Sedition' At Wedding Party

The reformist "Parlemannews" website has posted several pictures of Iranian opposition leaders Mir Hossein Musavi, Mehdi Karrubi, and former President Mohammad Khatami at last week's wedding of the son of the head of the reformist Mosharekat party, Mohsen Mirdamadi, who was jailed in the postelection crackdown.

Hassan Khomeini, the grandson of the founder of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, is also seen in the pictures.

The first picture, where the secretary-general of the reformist Militant Clerics Association, Mohammad Musavi Khoeniha, is also sitting at a table with the main opposition leaders, was taken by former Vice President Mohammad Ali Abtahi, who is known for his sense of humor.

He posted it on his Facebook page and wrote in the caption: "The heads, middle, and lower part of the sedition."

P.S. The soda drink you see on the table is Zam Zam, Iran's version of Coca-Cola or Pepsi.
