(Wikipedia) - The 2009 Iranian university dormitory raids took place on June 14, 2009 (or 24 Khordad in the Iranian calendar) at various university dormitories throughout Iran. The raids were carried out by the state-sponsored Basij militiamen against students suspected of having participated in the ongoing election protests.
The dormitories of Tehran University, the largest general university in the Islamic Republic of Iran, were raided by a partisan militia group called plainclothes. At least 3 men and two women were reported to have been killed or wounded.
Unrest between students and Basij also took place at Amir Kabir University in Tehran, University of Sistan and Baluchestan, Razi University in Kermanshah, and University of Mazandaran; Ferdowsi University in Mashhad, in particular, was the scene of violence between students and members of both the Basij and the Ansar Hezbollah.
One hundred and nineteen faculty members of the University of Tehran resigned on June 15, 2009 in protest of the raid. Ali Larijani, speaker of the Iranian Majlis, condemned the raid and blamed the Interior Ministry for the unfortunate incident; the Interior Ministry, in turn, ordered a formal probe.
