Mir Hossein Mousavi, today declared his readiness to die after
hardline government supporters called for his execution.

Mousavi, who believes he was the rightful winner of June’s disputed presidential election, said Iran was in “serious crisis” and demanded the immediate release of supporters arrested in a government crackdown since the summer.

In a statement on his Kaleme website, Mousavi said the government was making more mistakes by resorting to violence and killings.

“Arresting or killing Mousavi, [another opposition leader Mehdi] Karoubi … will not calm the situation,” Mousavi said. “I am not afraid to die for people’s demands … Iran is in serious crisis … Harsh remarks … will create internal uprising … the election law should be changed … political prisoners should be freed.”
