Iranian Dissidents Blow Up Bridge In Protest to Ahmadinejad's Rigged Election Victory …Update: 85 Year-Old Woman Protests Killer Regime (Video)
According first to Twitter reports, then shortly thereafter reported by non-official Iranian web sources and blogs, a large explosion has rocked the Iranian city of Ahvaz, near the Kianpars neighbourhood.
The Telegraph Blog reported, via Free Republic:
As Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is sworn in for his second term in office today, Iranian opposition groups have intensified their attacks against the regime in protest at the controversial election result.
In the latest incident, a leading opposition group is being blamed for blowing up a key railway bridge at Ahwaz in southern Iran. The bridge, which is used by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards to transport military supplies, was destroyed in the early hours of Saturday morning. According to reports now reaching the West, Iranian security officials immediately sealed off the area to prevent onlookers seeing the extent of the damage.
A leading Iranian dissident group called the Abu Bakr forces is being blamed for the attack, which has severely disrupted one of the country’s main freight rail links with Bandar Imam Khomeini sea port.
The attack was timed to coincide with the Islamic regime’s decision to put on trial hundreds of anti-government protesters at the weekend as part of the government’s continuing efforts to suppress all opposition to Mr Ahmadinejad’s re-election in June. Although many Iranians believe the election result was rigged, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country’s supreme leader, has accepted the result which means his favoured candidate will now serve a second term in office.
The official Tehran Times said it was a “sound bomb” leaving no damages or casualties.
UPDATE: Here is an amazing woman…
