TEHRAN (AFP) — Iran has freed two female lawyers who were detained last weekend on security charges along with three other attorneys, an opposition website reported on Friday.

Kaleme.com, the website of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, identified the two as Maryam Karbasi and Roza Gharachorlu, without providing any details about the conditions and time of their release.

Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi had accused the five arrested at the weekend of “committing security crimes and acts violating the Islamic republic’s norms outside the country.”

The other three including two women and a man are still being held. Some among the group are known to advocate human rights and to have defended political prisoners.

Several human rights lawyers have been targeted in Iran’s ongoing crackdown on dissent, which saw scores of activists, journalists and government critics jailed since its disputed 2009 presidential election and ensuing unrest.
