    Photo of the Day

    Brig. Gen. Farhad Nazari, foreground, accompanied by his lawyer, listens to a student's testimony during his trial Tuesday, Feb. 29, 2000 in Tehran, Iran. Nazari, the main defendant, is accused of ordering an attack on a Tehran University dormitory in July 1999 to break-up a student protest over the closure of a reformist newspaper. At least one person was killed and 20 injured in the raids. The attack set off the worst riots in Iran in two decades and fuelled an ongoing reformist movement. The trial signaled Iran's willingness to punish hard-liners who take the law into their own hands. Hard-line vigilantes have frequently attacked critics of clerical rule in recent years without facing legal retribution.
