Tehran, Iran, Jun. 23 – Students in Allameh Tabatabai University protested against the extended detention of a fellow student activist who was arrested during a demonstration by women in Tehran’s Laleh Park.

Ali Vakili, a final-year student in Allameh Tabatabai University, was arrested by State Security Forces last week after he made a speech at a protest rally by women demanding equal rights and a nationwide boycott of Iran’s presidential elections.

Azadeh Akbari, a spokesperson for student activists in the university, said Vakili’s whereabouts remain unknown despite several statements having been issued for his release.

Last week thousands of people joined an anti-government protest initially started by a few dozen women in downtown Tehran, resulting in one of the largest demonstrations against Iran’s clerical rulers in recent months.
