Mehdi Mousavi and Fatemeh Ekhtesari

An opposition website reports that two poets, Mehdi Mousavi and Fatemeh Ekhtesari, have been arrested by Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

The Kaleme website reports that the two have been under arrest since early December.

The report indicates the two had been banned from traveling abroad and arrested by the intelligence branch of the Revolutionary Guards.

The report adds that their arrest may be linked to the recent arrests of a number of cyber activists and underground musicians.
