Five Azeris arrested in Iran

September 23 a new school year starts in Iran. However, in the Jolfa town, as well as in other Iranian towns, troops have been deployed by the authorities in order to prevent massive rallies, the APA news agency informs. The reason for the measure is mass protest actions held by Azeris against opening new schools in Farsi. Five Azeris have been arrested in Jolfa: Muhammedriz Hatemi, Gussein Shamsi, Adil Sukru, Reza Molai, and Zohrab Rashtberi.
