Opposition websites reported that Mir Hossein Musavi and Mehdi Karrubi issued the call after a meeting today.

Musavi and Karrubi lost out to Ahmadinejad in last year's election and still refuse to acknowledge Ahmadinejad's victory, accusing him of massive vote fraud.

Security forces have cracked down heavily on protests against the election outcome, with scores of protesters killed and thousands arrested.
