Saham News reports that Mehdi Karroubi, one of reformist candidates in the last presidential election, was taken temporarily this week to a hospital linked to Tehran's security forces.

The report indicates that he has lost weight and is suffering from nausea, dizziness and loss of appetite.

Mir Hossein Mousavi, the other opposition leader under house arrest, was also taken to hospital for a few hours today, Tuesday November 20, according to the Kaleme opposition website.

Two months ago, Mousavi was taken to hospital to undergo heart procedures.

The two opposition leaders were put under house arrest in February of 2010 together with their wives. Fatemeh Karroubi was later released but Zahra Rahanvard is still under house arrest with Mir Hossein Mousavi after nearly 650 days.

The Karroubi family has called on the authorities to allow Mehdi Karroubi, who is now being held alone, to be kept in his own home where he can be together with his wife.
