Abdolbaghi, who was arrested in connection with the 1998 student disturbances, tells RFE/RL that he shared a cell block with other student activists, including the Mohammadi brothers, Ahmad Batebi, Mohsen Lohrasbi and Mohammad Hussein Yekta.

Now the US has military presence or good relations with all areas surrounding Iran, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea, Kuwait, northern Iraq, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Georgia, and Uzbekistan.
