Iran university students on hunger strike as protests rise

Students in the University of Yazd (central Iran) have started a hunger strike today in protest against a recent government clampdown on student activists.

The students said they began their hunger strike after recent threats by the authorities against them. A number of students have been arrested by the secret police, the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, on bogus charges.
