Nightly attacks on defenseless students – this is just one of many allegations raised against the regime by Iranian university professors. 88 professors in an open letter addressed the religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. One of the points referred to in the letter is the violent actions of militias against students of Tehran University following a protest rally in December. The signatories demand punishment of the perpetrators, and the release of all arrested students.
