Iran releases daughters of Opposition leader
Dubai (United Arab Emirates): Iranian prosecutors have released the daughters of reformist leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, who has been under house arrest for nearly two years.
It was reported earlier today that Zahra and Narges Mousavi were taken into custody after police searched their homes.
Iranian officials did not immediately comment, but the two women have campaigned to free their parents.
Mir Hossein Mousavi was the leader of the Green Movement in the 2009 race against Ahmadinejad and spearheaded massive protests over alleged vote rigging after the outcome.
Mousavi, his wife Zahra Rahnavard and another Ahmadinejad challenger, Mahdi Karroubi, have been under house arrest since early 2011.
The incident comes just days before the second anniversary of massive protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which falls on Wednesday.
Mousavi, his wife Zahra Rahnavard and another Ahmadinejad challenger, Mahdi Karroubi, have been under house arrest since February 2011. No formal charges have been made against them.
