Iranian authorities cracking down on youth disenchanted with repressive government

The state media in Iran has published these photographs and others as a warning to young people what is in store for them if they engage in dissent.

This from Iran Focus (including photographs here and here):
Iranian authorities have stepped up arrests of young people in the city of Karaj, west of the capital Tehran, as part of a nationwide “plan to eradicate corruption”.

Dissidents charge that Tehran’s clerical rulers are fiercely cracking down on youths disenchanted with the government’s repressive policies rather than on “trouble-makers”.
