Karroubi Harassed by Basijis

According to Radio Farda, more than 60 Basiji’s on motorcycles harassed Karroubi during his stay in Qom early Friday morning.  The Basijis reportedly gathered in front of Karroubi’s residence after midnight and shouted insulting remarks against him.
During Karroubi’s visit in Qom, the police and security forces cooperated with Karroubi’s bodyguards.  Ultimately, the Basijis left due to cold weather and police intervention.  Karroubi was not harmed.
