the last wave of political murders, in which the Forouhars and several
writers were slaughtered by the secret services of the islamic republic from

hospitalized in critical conditions...

French concern at arrests of Jews in Iran

19:38 GMT, 19 May 1999

PARIS, May 19 (AFP) -A French Jewish leader Wednesday called on foreign
minister Hubert Vedrine urgently to intervene over the reported arrest of 22
Jews in Iran some weeks ago, about whom nothing has been heard since.

In a statement to AFP, the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in
France said it was concerned at the fate of the 22.

There had been no news of them since their arrest and the reasons for the
arrests were not known.

The council president, Henri Hajdenberg, had asked urgently for a meeting
with the Iranian ambassador to Paris, the statement said.
