Iran reformers blast government in call for new vote

A group of top Iranian reformists have called for a national vote on the country’s disputed presidential election in order to "exit this dead end and current crisis." The Association of Combatant Clergy issued a blistering statement saying the people’s trust had been lost after the opposition was “met with brutality, beatings, indecency and incarcerations.” Iran’s current leaders “betrayed the revolution, its values, the homeland and the people, in irreparable ways,” according to the statement, posted Sunday on, the Association’s Web site. The group is linked to Mohammad Khatami, the former president who supports defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Moussavi.
