Veteran Iran revolutionary dies in car crash

TEHRAN, June 1 (Reuters) - A veteran Iranian revolutionary and former member of parliament died in a car accident on Thursday, state radio reported.

Ali Akbar Aboutorabi, a veteran of the 1980-1988 war against Iraq, died along with his father when their car crashed into a trailer truck near Mashhad, a city in northeastern Iran.

Two other people were injured in the accident.

Aboutorabi had spent nearly a decade in captivity in Iraq and been a close aide to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on prisoner of war affairs since his release in the early 1990s.

He was also a deputy in the past two parliaments, advocating the interests of the war veterans and loyalists of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Although a revolutionary, Aboutorabi largely stayed on the sidelines of a power struggle between Iranian reformers and hardline conservatives.
