TEHERAN - IRAN appears to be intensifying its crackdown on opposition protesters ahead of today's official verdict on the disputed election result, with militiamen reportedly seizing injured demonstrators from hospitals.
Ms Banafsheh Akhlaghi, western regional director of the human rights group, said it had collected accounts from people who have left Iran and expatriates with relatives there who say the government's paramilitary wing has been stopping hospital staff from taking identification information from wounded demonstrators who check in.
And she said that once the patients have been treated, the Basij remove them to an undisclosed location.
One woman, who has since fled to the United States and spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear for her safety, told CNN that she broke an ankle and a thumb during a demonstration, but had a doctor come to treat her as she was too afraid to risk being seized by the militiamen if she went to hospital. A friend who travelled with her said: 'The point is, when they are being taken to the hospital they don't actually get there
More than 2,000 people are still in detention and hundreds more are missing since the government crackdown began, the Paris-based International Federation for Human Rights said on Sunday.

Obama brown shirts in another country doth smell as gross.
We need to find a way to support the freedom fighters.
Time for Israel to take out Iran’s nukes. The mullah’s have no legitimacy and Israel haters will be back on the heels. It will allow the Mullah’s to rally support among their people for a while, but it doesn’t matter because it’s a dying regime anyway. Let the mullah’s finish off their own people slowly.
I remember reading about some militant opposition groups in other parts of Iran, I wonder what they are doing now?
Of course the ruling mullahs would want to keep that news
out of the press but I would think they would be working to
keep the protests going.
And of course, the press is wall to wall with Micael Jackson retrospective. Nothing to see here, folks, move along......
They know no one will do anything and that they can take reprisals now.
Revolting and scary. Just when you thought you heard it all.
It's revolting. Recall how the MSM kept count of Bush' outings and vacations and such. Now they are just star struck at Obama's every utterance and action. MF 9-5 - O is just happy he can 'clock out' and not have to answer those questions about Iran, not that his yes-men would ask...
