Opposition Candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi Claims Headquarters Ransacked by Plainclothes Police Officers

Mousavi spokesman Mohsen Makhmalbaf said "Mousavi's headquarters was wrecked by plainclothes police officers" with many staffers arrested, and Mousavi himself ordered by the Revolutionary Guard to stay silent.

Makhmalbaf said his job was "to urge people to take to the streets because Mousavi could not do so directly"

I have been given the ¬≠responsibility of telling the world what is happening in Iran. The office of Mir Hossein Mousavi, who the Iranian people truly want as their leader, has asked me to do so. They have asked me to tell how Mousavi's headquarters was wrecked by plainclothes police officers. To tell how the commanders of the revolutionary guard ordered him to stay silent. To urge people to take to the streets because Mousavi could not do so directly.‚ÄĚ
