Basij paramilitary forces terrorize residents of apartment complex in north Tehran

06/17/09 - The Basij paramilitary forces are using fear tactics to intimidate residents of neighborhoods of Tehran whom they suspect of supporting the presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi. On Monday June 15 at about 1 AM, these forces attacked Sobhan residential complex located at Kaveh Blvd. in Gheitarieh neighborhood of Tehran.

The Basijis entered the compound after attacking the guard's station, breaking the glasses and beating the guard. They then inflicted damage to the lobby and the elevators. Next they entered the parking and vandalized the cars.

The Basijis left happily around 3 AM after the intervention of regular police forces. If this attack had happened by thugs, would the police have allowed them to exit the complex just as easily?
