TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran began its third mass trial on Sunday of people accused of fomenting the unrest that erupted after the disputed June presidential election, Iranian media reported.
The June 12 vote has plunged the Islamic state into its biggest internal crisis since the 1979 Islamic revolution and has exposed deepening divisions within its ruling elite.
The semi-official Mehr news agency said no prominent moderate politicians were among those on trial on Sunday. Fars News Agency said more than 20 people were being tried.
Iran has previously held two mass trials for more than 100 moderates, including senior politicians, for various charges including acting against national security which is punishable by death under Iran's Islamic law.
French teaching assistant Clotilde Reiss and two Iranians working for the British and French embassies in Tehran were among those tried on August 8.
