Mohammad Khatami (file photo) (epa) May 7, 2006 -- Former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami today warned against what he called "organized radicalism" in Iran, in an apparent reference to his successor.

Although he did not name President Mahmud Ahmadinejad by name, Khatami told students at Tehran University that "a certain group" was trying to impose its radical ideology on Iranian society.

Khatami warned that even what he called "well-known fundamentalists" were unhappy with the situation.
