Swedes Open Up Computers For Iran

As the violent battle for power continues between the regime and the opposition in Iran, worried Swedish-Iranian immigrants and refugees here are desperate to get information and to contact relatives and friends, despite the regime's censorship and closed internet and telephone services.

A number of Swedish-Iranians and others here in this Nordic nation have been helping people in Iran to circumvent the censors by offering Swedish-based computer services to open up websites blocked by the regime. Ali Mehrabi is one of those trying to help.
