Iran arrests three women lawyers: reports

AFP: Iranian authorities have arrested three female lawyers at an airport in Tehran after they arrived on a flight from Turkey, media reported on Sunday.

TEHRAN, November 14, 2010 (AFP) – Iranian authorities have arrested three female lawyers at an airport in Tehran after they arrived on a flight from Turkey, media reported on Sunday.

The three detained at Imam Khomeini airport Saturday were identified as Sara Sabaghian, Maryam Kianersi and Maryam Karbasi, reformist newspapers Arman and Shargh said, without providing further details.

Sabaghian reportedly represented a detained opposition blogger and Kianersi was on the defence team of Kobra Najjar, a woman sentenced to death by stoning who was acquitted and freed about two years ago.

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 the disputed 2009 presidential election and the ensuing unrest.
