Extremists attack participants in memorial for Iranian premier Mossadegh

10:01 GMT, 20 May 1999

TEHRAN, May 20 (AFP) -Several people were slightly injured when extremists
attacked a gathering to commemorate the birthday of deceased prime minister
Mohammad Mossadegh, the father of secular nationalism in Iran, newspapers
said Thursday.

The assailants interrupted a speech by liberal opposition figure Ezatollah
Sahabi, a former president in charge of the Plan and Budget Organisation,
and slightly wounded several participants in the ceremony at Ahmad Abad
village where Mossadegh was born, the Tehran press said.

"The attack by the extremists disrupted the ceremony and the crowd
dispersed," Jahan-e-Eslam said, adding that the assailants then damaged the
participants' vehicles in the village, which is 100 kilometers (62 miles)
west of Tehran.

The Islamic Republic's security forces intervened, arresting "several young
nationalists as well as several extremists," the pro-government newspaper
said.
