Memorial ceremony held in Behesht-e Zahra cemetery for green martyrs

June 15, 2010  Memorial ceremonies were held in Tehran Cemetery on Tuesday for the Green martyrs who were shot and killed during the epic June 15, 2009 peaceful protest.

Some 500 opposition supporters gathered in Behesht-e Zahra Cemetry in southern Tehran despite measures by authorities to disperse the crowd.

Earlier, some 200 security agents had set up barricades at the entrance of the cemetery to block people from entering.

Many people inside the cemetery were carrying flowers to lay at the tombs of those killed by security forces during anti-government protests last year.

 At least 30 people were arrested and dozens wounded in clashes between security forces and opposition supporters at the cemetery.

Separately, a small rally took place in Tehran’s Vali Asr Square, but police quickly dispersed the crowd, according to eye witnesses.

Also, internet lines have been extremely slow in the capital throughout the day.
