BEIRUT/WASHINGTON Montreal academic Homa Hoodfar was preparing to return to Canada from Iran in March when agents from Iran's powerful paramilitary Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps raided her Tehran home and took her laptop, phone, books and passport, her family said. Over the course of the next three months, Hoodfar, an Iranian, Canadian and Irish citizen, was called in regularly for day-long interrogations. On June 6, she went in for yet another interrogation session but was not released.       Nine days later, the hardline Mashregh site, which is affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, published what it alleged were her crimes: creating security problems within the Islamic Republic by taking part in feminist activities. #Politics #India #Europe #Iran #Crime #article

Turkey's bungled putsch: a strangely 20th century coup | Reuters

ANKARA/BRUSSELS It was a strangely 20th century coup, defeated by 21st century technology and people power. When a self-styled military "Peace Council" tried to topple Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and his increasingly authoritarian government on Friday night, the rebel generals and colonels seemed to be fighting the last war. "This coup was obviously planned quite well but using a playbook from the 1970s," said Gareth Jenkins, a researcher and writer on military affairs based in Istanbul. #Iran #Security #United Kingdom #Turkey #article

Iran summons French ambassador over dissident meeting in Paris | Reuters

DUBAI Iran summoned the French ambassador on Tuesday to protest about a meeting held in Paris by Iranians in exile who seek the overthrow of the Islamic Republic. The rally was held on Saturday by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the political wing of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq Organisation (MKO), a group that waged armed struggle against the Iranian government after the 1979 revolution and assassinated dozens of its top officials. The MKO sided with Saddam Hussein during Iraq's war with Iran in the 1980s but fell out of favour with Baghdad after he was toppled by the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 #United States #Business #markets #Iran #Argentina #French
