Paris: Iran has arrested a niece of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, her brother and activists, months after she took part in a celebration praising the widow of the ousted shah. Farideh Moradkhani, who has gained prominence as an anti-death penalty activist, was detained by security forces on Thursday, her brother Mahmoud Moradkhani told London-based Iran International TV on Sunday.
