Iran calls for death penalty for opposition and Egypt-style protesters

Same old, same old.

Members of Iran’s parliament have called for opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi to be tried and executed.

Some 50 conservative MPs marched through parliament’s main hall on Tuesday, chanting “Death to Mousavi, death to Karroubi”, shown on state TV.

Thousands of opposition supporters had protested in Iran’s capital on Monday.
