Tehran, Iran, Aug. 29 – Iran’s State Security Forces have arrested 442 “trouble-makers” in the coastal province of Gilan, northern Iran, according to the provincial police press office.

The arrests come after Iranian authorities announced that they had launched a new crackdown to root out dissent in society.
