Iran: Local Authorities Try To Evict Sufi Leader

Iran: Local Authorities Try To Evict Sufi Leader -
About 300 security forces in the northeastern Iranian city of Gonabad surrounded the residence of a prominent Sufi leader on October 10 after he refused an order to leave his city of birth. Critics call the eviction order the latest example of official harassment of minority religious groups like Sufis and dervishes. -RFE 10/12/06
