Iranian election aftermath
Election fallout in Iran.
AT least 10 leaders of two Iranian reformist groups who backed defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi have been arrested.
The arrests follow riots by thousands of opposition supporters and furious complaints of cheating after Friday's elections, which saw incumbent hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared the winner.
Mr Ahmadinejad went on television to declare the election a "great victory", even as baton-wielding police were clashing with protesters in the streets of the capital in unrest not seen since student riots a decade ago.
