Iran 'jails opposition leader Mohsen Aminzadeh'

An Iranian opposition leader has been jailed for six years for his role in the unrest following June's disputed presidential election, reports say.

Mohsen Aminzadeh was convicted of organising protests, disturbing security and spreading propaganda against the system, his lawyer said.

He was a prominent supporter of the defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.

Meanwhile, opposition websites say nine journalists have been detained in the past two days, taking the total to 55.
