I guess that no one will be surprised to read this:

Iranian security forces have detained film director Jafar Panahi, winner of many international awards, an opposition website said on Tuesday.

Panahi was held at his home together with his wife Mahnaz Mohammadi, daughter and 15 guests on Monday evening, opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi’s website Kaleme said.

Panahi’s home was searched and some of his belongings seized, it added.

The director supported Mousavi in last year’s disputed presidential election, which plunged the Islamic Republic into months of political turmoil.
