1610 GMT: Mousavi and a Funeral. Extracts from the account of Javid Ghorban Oghli, a member of Mir Hossein Mousavi's electoral campaign and Iran's former Ambassador to Algeria, of the funeral and burial ceremony for Mir Hossein Mousavi's father, Mir Esmail Mousavi:
The security agents who were desperate after hearing the threats and persistence by the family, eventually brought Mir Hossein Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard to Mir Esmail Mousavi's residence a few hours later. After 50 days of separation from his ailing father, they only allowed Mr. Mousavi to see him for a few minutes....Yes. However, this visit was also in the presence of security forces and only lasted a few minutes, after which they immediately took Mr. Mousavi and his wife away....Father and son were oppressed to such a degree that they did not even allow Mousavi to be present at his father's burial ceremony and to participate in carrying his casket.
The security forces were to blame for the altercations [at the funeral ceremony]. From early morning, 15 Khordad Street and all the streets around it were filled with police and special security forces. The entire ceremony was marred with an intense security atmosphere....In accordance with Islamic tradition, the casket was being carried by family members for a short distance when security forces suddenly attacked the individuals involved in the procession, robbed the body of the deceased and put it inside an ambulance. The family naturally protested the violent and unacceptable behavior by the security agents and those present began chanting "Ya Hossein... Mir Hossein". The oppressors even went as far as accosting, insulting and eventually arresting someone like Ayatollah Nouralhayan, a clergyman who has been close to the Supreme Leader for years. A number of Mir Hossein Mousavi's close relatives were beaten and also arrested. Despite the family's desire to put the late Mir Esmail Mousavi to rest in peace, the despicable and outrageous behavior by the security forces led to tension and unrest at the ceremony.
Unfortunately they behaved in the same manner at Beheshte Zahra Cemetery....When [former reformist MP] Dr. Shokourirad came up to express his condolences and begin the prayer ceremony, security agents brutally attacked him and then arrested him. They also arrested the daughter of Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili, one of the Grand Ayatollahs, who was later released after a few hours. They also released Dr. Shokourirad a few hours later at a corner of Beheshte Zahra Cemetery. The ceremony ended at 11:00am and the security forces forced all those present to leave the premises immediately. They themselves remained present, however, in order to prevent the general public from coming near the burial grounds.

1500 GMT: Mousavi and A Funeral. Kalemeh confirms that Mir Hossein Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard were allowed to see the body of Mousavi's father last night, but only under heavy guard by security forces.
Mousavi and Rahnavard have been under strict house arrest or detention since mid-February.
Meanwhile, among those in the funeral procession arrested this morning by security forces (see 0845 GMT) were former MP Ali Shakouri Rad, Mousavi's brother-in-law Mir Hassan Habibi Mousavi, whose son Ali was killed during the Ashura protest in December 2009, and Hojatoleslam Norollahian, a clerical activist in the 2009 Mousavi Presidential campaign.

1355 GMT: International Front. Back from an academic break to find that Kuwait has summoned Iran's top diplomatic official to warn Tehran not to interfere in internal affairs.

The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament has struck on another front --- at least rhetorically --- by warning Saudi Arabia that "playing with fire" in a sensitive Middle East will not be in its interests.

0745 GMT: Selective Protesting. IRNA reports that Iranian protesters gathered on Wednesday in front of the United Nations office in Tehran to voice solidarity with repressed anti-regime protesters in Arab states, chanting, “Death to America....Death to the Israeli regime”.

Mohseni can be summoned back to prison at any point if authorities believed he has committed a further offence.
There is concern about the situation of journalist and Karroubi consultant Taghi Rahmani, who was arrested again by the regime during the protests of 14 February. Phone calls to him in Evin Prison were cut off in early March.
Rahmani has spent a total of more than 14 years in prison since the 1980s because of his journalism and activism.

In January, Nobel Prize winner Paolo Coelho posted Persian-language editions of his books on his website after his works were banned by the Ministry of Culture.
0605 GMT: Kalemeh, the website linked to Mir Hossein Mousavi, says the regime has ended the New Year prison furlough of some reformistpolitical prisoners. The reason? Authorities are concerned they will participate in the funeral of Mousavi's father.
Those recalled include Mohsen Mirdamadi, Abdollah Ramezanzadeh, and Feizollah Arabsorkhi.
0445 GMT: Yesterday Mir Esmail Mousavi, the 97-year-old father of the detained opposition figure Mir Hossein Mousavi, died.
The development raised an immediate question: would the younger Mousavi, held under house arrest or detention by Iranian authorities since mid-February, be allowed to attend today's funeral service?
According to one relative, Mousavi was taken to see his dead father for the last time. He supposedly kept repeating the word "patience".
The Green Path of Hope Coordinating Committee, the umbrella group for the opposition, has asked people to attend the funeral services.
