Iranian reformists have used the funeral of a senior dissident cleric, the Grand Ayatollah Hosein Ali Montazeri, to revive the protest movement which sprang up after election in June. There have been reports of fierce clashes between police and mourners in the holy city of Qom and assailants on motorbikes, who the protesters say were members of the security forces, attacked the car of the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi shattering the windows and injuring a member of his entourage.
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Members of an Islamic militia and "plainclothes men" attacked the home of a senior pro-reform cleric, Ayatollah Yusuf Sanei, in the holy city of Qom on Tuesday, a reformist website said.
The Norooz site said attackers insulted Sanei, beat up some of his associates and broke windows. There was no immediate official comment.
