Human Rights Groups Call for the Release of Protesters in Iran

At least 7,000 people have also been arrested, according to one parliamentarian. Those detained since the protests began include journalists and human rights defenders. The undersigned organizations are seriously concerned about the fate and whereabouts of the detainees, many of whom have been subjected to enforced disappearance or have otherwise been arbitrarily detained and denied access to their families and lawyers of their own choosing.
