Mousavi`s nephew was assassinated: Iranian police

Iran`s deputy police chief said the nephew of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi was assassinated by unidentified assailants and not killed by security forces.



Tehran: Iran`s deputy police chief said the
nephew of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi was
assassinated by unidentified assailants and not killed by
security forces.

Ali Mousavi was one of at least eight people killed
during clashes Sunday when tens of thousands of opposition
supporters protested against the government.

The opposition says Ali Mousavi was shot and killed by
security forces. But Iran`s deputy police chief, Ahmad Reza
Radan, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying
that the way he was killed suggests he was assassinated while
walking.

The New York Times has quoted a family friend as saying
Ali Mousavi was run over by a vehicle outside his home in an
assassination.
