    gooya news :: politics : دومين تلاش برای حمله به زهرا رهنورد، هم‌ميهن

    Zahra Rahnavard, the wife of Mir Hossein Mousavi, was attacked in Tehran University by a group of women claiming to be members of the Basij.

    According to eyewitness reports, when Rahnavard asked the group why they were following her, they claimed to be there for her protection.

    "Rahnavard told them: you have been following me everywhere since morning. I tell you that I'm green inside and out and you are only here to stop me [from speaking]," the eyewitness said.

    The discussion then became heated and the leader of the Basiji women insulted Rahnavard. Witnesses said the leader of the group forced her way into the faculty of arts building and with the intervention of campus security Rahnavard was escorted out of the premises.

    The group of women following Rahnavard followed her to her car and sprayed her in the face with pepper spray from close range. Local shopkeepers came to Rahnavard's aid.
