Iran bracing for Green Movement protests?

A refusal by Tehran to hand over the bodies of five executed prisoners is a stark warning to the opposition movement, U.S. experts on Iran said.

The Iranian government is refusing to return the bodies of five people executed for alleged ties to terrorist organization to their families. Authorities are said to be concerned their return would spark unrest in the Kurdish provinces of northern Iran.

Though the executed have no connection to the opposition Green Movement, analysts told National Public Radio that the response from Tehran was a message to the opposition.
