Tehran, Iran, Sep. 14 – Authorities have stepped up arrests of young people in the city of Karaj, west of the Iranian capital Tehran, as part of a nationwide “plan to eradicate corruption”.

Dissidents charge that Tehran’s clerical rulers are fiercely cracking down on youths disenchanted with the government’s repressive policies rather than on “trouble-makers”.

The following photos of the crackdown were published earlier this week by state media:
