Iran Frees 140 Detainees

Iranian authorities said today they were releasing 140 detainees of the post-election street protests, while still keeping 150 in jail.

This is the first time the government has released any figures on the number of people arrested during the recent events. The 290 number as the number of total arrests has not been verified by independent sources. Some human rights groups have published much higher estimates.
