Tehran to be Shutdown for Two Days

Tehran's pollution committee has decided to close all government agencies, schools, and factories for the next two days due to heavy pollution from the unprecedented sandstorms that have engulfed so much of the country.

There seems to be more into whats really behind the closures than just air pollution however. It coincides with the 10th anniversary of the student uprising on 9th July, 10 years ago. Also there was a call for a two day national strike by the Moussavi campaign team starting from today. Shutting down Tehran will now curtail the effect of the strike.
