"Authorities placed one of Iran's opposition leaders under house arrest Thursday, posting security officers at his door and detaining one of his aides, in response to his calls for a rally in support of anti-government demonstrations in Egypt, his website said. Iran's hard-line rulers — who have also tried to capitalize on the uprising against their regional rivals in Egypt's U.S.-allied regime — are seeking to deprive their own opponents at home of any chance to reinvigorate a movement swept from the streets in a heavy military crackdown."
