Iran Mum on Status of Missing Opposition Leaders

Tuesday, 01 Mar 2011 12:10 PM

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's foreign ministry spokesman says the country will not respond to international questions about the whereabouts of top opposition leaders who purportedly have been jailed.

Rights groups and family members claim that Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mahdi Karroubi have been taken from their homes and jailed.

The spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters Tuesday that the issue is a domestic matter and denounced outside pressures to clarify the status of the two opposition figures.

Officials have not supplied clear answers on the location of Mousavi and Karroubi.

The semiofficial news agency ISNA quotes prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi as saying that the two men are not in a prison, but the report gives no further details.
