Fearing that conditions are spinning out of control, security agencies have cancelled a rally that was scheduled to be held in support of presidential candidate Mohammad Raza Arif.


The official Fars New Agency reported that “The Campaign Committee of Mohammad Raza Arif had secured permission to hold a rally of young Arif supporters in Mashhad today, and present bouquets of white flowers to the heads of the campaign committees for the other presidential candidates, namely Rezai, Jalili, Vilayati, Haddad Adil, Rowhani and Qalibaf. Permission for the rally was withdrawn moments before its scheduled start.
