Iran's top leader warns politicians

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - State radio says Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has told politicians to be careful in their stances on the country's postelection unrest, saying that disturbing security is "the biggest vice."

Khamenei's comments appear aimed at warning opposition politicians against making any moves that would encourage further protests like the ones that shook the country following the disputed presidential election on June 12.

Khamenei also says foreign enemies supported the unrest by broadcasting "procedures for rioting" through their media, according to Monday's state media report.

Security forces crushed protests by hundreds of thousands following the election, which the opposition claims President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won through fraud.
