Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) today denied that it or Islamist militia fighters had besieged the home of opposition leader Mehdi Karrubi.

The IRGC said in a statement that Karrubi's home, under seige since last week, was carried out by "rogue elements" who were not linked to the Revolutionary Guards or to the Basij militia.

Attackers had shotguns and threw Molotov cocktails at the building, injuring Karrubi's chief bodyguard.
