Iranian cyber police on web patrol

Its main role will be to patrol the web to prevent opposition groups contacting each other and organising the kinds of protests seen after the contested 2009 presidential election.

It will also attempt to beef up the state web defences after the Stuxnet computer worm made its way into computers involved in Iran’s nuclear programme.
