Mideast Iran Election

A conservative who ran in Iran's disputed presidential election has criticized the government for not putting people on trial who attacked opposition protesters and tortured detainees.
Mohsen Rezaei sent a letter to Iran's judiciary chief saying the post-election unrest would likely continue if those who harmed opposition supporters were not brought to justice.
Sunday's report on Rezaei's Web site comes a day after Iran began its first trial against protesters and activists following the June 12 vote.
The opposition claims President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stole the election through fraud.
Iran's parliament says at least 30 people have been killed in post-election unrest. The son of one of Rezaei's top aides died while in detention.
