Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei pardoned "tens of thousands" of prisoners, almost all were arrested in recent anti-government protests over security-related charges, state media reported. "Prisoners not facing charges of spying for foreign agencies, having direct contact with foreign agents, committing intentional murder and injury, committing destruction and arson of state property, or not having a private plaintiff in their case will be pardoned," state media said.
