“50 to 60 people have been arrested in Kashan’s illegal gatherings,” State-run Mehr News Agency quoted the Kashan prosecutor who added “any illegal gathering and insurgents will be dealt with seriously. The law enforcement officers will deal with any unauthorized gathering violently and legally.”

Judiciary Chief Orders Crackdown
