  • Description

    Some three thousand young people demonstrated in West Berlin's main shopping street, the Kurfuerstendamm, yesterday (Friday) against military trials in Teheran which could lead to death penalties for 50 men accused of sabotage and other anti-government acts.

    Among the demonstrators were Iranian students who wore blue head-masks to avoid being identified by the Savak - the Iranian security police.

    Early last month (4 April) it was announced in Teheran that 13 members of a "Communist inspired sabotage ring" had been executed on 17 March by firing-squad following conviction by a military court on charges of sabotage, murder, armed robbery and forgery of official documents.

    Three days later, General Farsiu, head of Iran's military tribunals, was fatally injured in a machine-gun attack outside his home. The attackers escaped.
