Iranian Human Rights Activists Detained Near Tehran

PRAGUE -- Reports say three members of Iran's One Million Signatures Campaign, which aims to gather support against discriminatory laws, have been detained while seeking signatures in the mountains outside of Tehran.

Campaign member Hoda Aminian told RFE/RL's Radio Farda that the three have reportedly been transferred to the Vozara detention center.

The campaign has been under increasing state pressure in recent months.

Aminian told Radio Farda that in the past two years more than 50 members of the campaign have been detained.
