Tensions and clashes at Industrial University of Isfahan (

On December 14th, a large number of students at this university gathered in front of the Amphitheater building around noon. The gathering led to a violent clash that included intervention and assault from Basij forces. The reason for this gathering was declared as insults of University Basij against Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi in recent days. One of the protesting students said: "Student Basij staged a gathering in opposition to insults against Imam Khomeini at the location, but what we saw yesterday was an event full of insults and slogans against Mousavi and Karoubi." Consequently, today at noon, a number of Industrial University students protested the behavior of the Basij with a gathering in front of the Amphitheater building, a customary place of gathering for the students. The students carried green slogans and this led to tensions and clashes after the Basij intervened and repeated yesterday's slogans. At the time this news is being published, at 3:30 pm, the clash continues and presence of campus security forces is evident. Industrial University of Isfahan had witnessed similar clashes and tensions on 7th and 8th of December. This university is the one that protested the declared results of the elections and was thus severely assaulted by oppressive forces from outside the university on 13th of June; classes were shut down and the end of the term exams were delayed until September.
