Iran's Revolutionary Guard Threatens Protesters

Guard issues warning against protestors

Iran's Revolutionary Guard has issued a warning today to opponents disputing a presedential election.

Protestors have been fighting in the streets for weeks disputing a national election in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was re-elected. The protestors believe the election was rigged and that Mir Hossein Mousavi should have won.

The Revolutionary Guard, considered to be the most powerful security force in Iran, says any further opposition protests would be met with "revolutionary confrontation."

Meantime, Iran's highest electoral authority, the Guardian Council, has reported voting irregularities in 50 electoral districs in the June 12th vote.

Mousavi encourages the people of Iran to keep up the protests, saying "The country belongs to you. Prostesting lies and fraud is your right."
