Reports state that Ex-Iranian President Ahmadinejad has been arrested

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was apprehended during a visit to the western city of Busehehr on December 28 according to Al Quds Al-Arabi

In the past 10 days, there were new protests, the largest in Iran since its 2009 disputed presidential election, fueled by young people angry over their bleak prospects.

"I think this was really an anti-regime uprising, because we saw Iranians attack Ayatollah Ali Kamenei, the supreme leader", Nader said.

The President also ordered the Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade and the Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance, as well as the Governor of the Central Bank to take measures to increase costs so that the exporters of state and private sectors can directly export their products to target countries.

In an age in which information is much more accessible and movements for human rights are spreading across the world, Iranians want something different.

The White House statement, issued in the name of press secretary Sarah Sanders, said: "The Trump administration is deeply concerned by reports that the Iranian regime has imprisoned thousands of ‎Iranian citizens in the past week for engaging in peaceful protests".

The prison was shut down and several officials put on trial, with the city's chief prosecutor at the time, Said Mortazavi, sentenced to two years in prison in November for his role in one of the deaths.

Dahimi said that there are four juveniles among the detainees, stressing the wave of protests across the country had not stopped. In another twist to the unfolding story, reports from Iran on Sunday indicate that former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was arrested for inciting protesters.

Although some have claimed the initial protests may have been initiated by hardline enemies of Rouhani, who is considered a moderate, their proliferation to dozens of cities including Tehran appeared entirely spontaneous.

Boca Juniors president: 'No Arsenal bids for Cristian Pavon'
According to the Independent , rather than looking to sign Pavon in January, Arsenal are considering a summer deal. Pavon signed an extension at Boca Juniors mid-2017 and still has a considerable time left on his new deal.

Calls to the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations in NY were not returned.

The protesters are also telling Rouhani's "reformers", in power now for five years, that they, too, have failed.

The protests now sweeping Iran are being considered the largest challenge to the Iranian regime since the Green Movement uprising in 2009 after the re-election of former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The protesters were Red State and Tea Party types, demanding their own version of "Come Home, Iran" and "Iran First!" Both the US and analysts studying Iran say hard-liners initially fomented the economic protests to put pressure on Rouhani but quickly lost control of them.

Bottom line: The Islamic Republic of Iran was not established to create a materially prosperous and socially free society, because, in the ayatollah's theology, such societies, like the U.S., are of the devil and corruptive of the people.

"This systemic economic mismanagement has its roots in the political system, and it grows worse every day".

"On the one hand it has succeeded in preventing these protests getting out of hand and contained them to a great extend and they did not achieve critical mass in terms of numbers", Randjbar-Daemi said.

He also intimated that the USA needed to adequately communicate to Iranians that sanctions levied on their country are not meant to hurt them, but the regime ruling their lives.
