Son: Iranian dad arrested for my Facebook posts

http://j.mp/M5s1Ax  (CNN)

   "So he took the only action he could and deleted his e-mail and
    personal Facebook account.  The page mocking the imam remained up.
    The day after his father called, Khameneh says, he got a call from his
    sister and mother in Iran. They were hysterical.  They said Iranian
    authorities had arrested his father and taken him to Evin prison in
    Tehran, a lockup notorious for torturing inmates.  Khameneh's sister
    begged him to give up his passwords. She pleaded for him to dismantle
    the Facebook page about the imam."
