TEHRAN (Reuters) - Two Iranian brothers, whose arrests last year sparked concern in the West, are among people accused of involvement in a U.S.-funded plot to overthrow the Islamic system of government, Iranian media said on Monday.Iran's judiciary last week said four Iranians had been detained in connection with a U.S.-sponsored conspiracy but did not name them, in an announcement that one Iranian analyst said was in part directed at incoming U.S. President Barack Obama. The European Union last year called on Iran to release the Alaei brothers, who specialize in HIV/AIDS and who were arrested in June. The U.S. State Department has also expressed concern.

Curing AIDS and getting rid of the cancerous IRI at the same time.  Now THAT would be something.
