Blogger Mehdi Khazali, who is the son of a conservative ayatollah and a critic of Ahmadinejad, had made some interesting observations about Tehran's atmosphere on the anniversary of the vote.
He said that on June 12 Tehran looked as if it was under marshal law because of the very heavy presence of security forces.
He added that "Tehran's marshal law" had a message for the world: "The Iranian nation is alive despite the severe repression."
A student in the Iranian capital who has been attending some of the protests over the reelection of Mahmud Ahmadinejad had similar observations. He told me in an e-mail from Tehran was in a state of siege. "It was so bad that I couldn't take any pictures; there were Basij members and riots forces everywhere."
Iran says 91 people were arrested as "suspects "on the first anniversary of the disputed vote.
The "Kaleme" website, which is close to opposition leader Mir Hossein Musavi, reported that several students were summoned to university's security organs on June 12 and arrested, including two in Kermanshah and several in Tehran.
