Former Iran prosecutor Mortazavi arrested -statement

DUBAI, Feb 5 (Reuters) - A former Iranian prosecutor at the centre of a growing confrontation between two of Iran's most powerful figures has been arrested, according to a statement posted Tuesday on the Tehran prosecutor's website. No reason was given for the arrest, but the timing suggested it might be linked to the role of the former judicial official, Saeed Mortazavi, in a dispute between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.
