Tehran, Jan 26 – A midnight raid by members of a special police force on protesters at the main theater in Tehran led to several arrests, according to eye-witnesses.

Several hundred people had waited for hours on Tuesday evening to watch Souvenir Picture, a new play by Iranian director Qotbaddin Sadeghi, at the capital’s City Theater. They were first promised that a late-night session would be staged, but theater directors went back on their word and ruled out another show. The crowd of mainly young people, who had waited for hours in line to watch the play, began a protest that rapidly turned political.

Police commandos were summoned to the scene and used force to disperse the angry protesters. Several young persons were arrested and their fate remains unknown.
