Updates from Iran

First, from the Times Online in the UK, via Hugh Hewitt:

The International Federation for Human Rights said yesterday that more than 2,000 people are still in detention and hundreds more are missing across Iran since a government crackdown on the opposition. Among those arrested are reformists, journalists and analysts, including supporters of Mr Mousavi and even some figures close to top officials, in a sign of cracks appearing within the regime over the election.

And this is from Persian-Canadian, Winston, at The Spirit of Man blog:

As I was going to bed, I received some messages from a friend in Tehran asking me to mention these four points:

1- The SMS service is still shut off and internet access is not available in most parts.

2- Uniformed police presence in Tehran has been less visible these days but plain clothed agents and Basijis keep a close eye on every one.

3- Basijis run check points every night at major intersections or streets of Tehran.

4- People still chant anti-regime slogans on their rooftops every night.

Keep the Iranian people in your prayers. This uprising isn’t over yet.
