(AP) A semi-official Iranian news agency is reporting that the country's two main opposition leaders are not competent to run as candidates in the presidential election in June.


Fars news agency is quoting State Prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehei as saying Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mahdi Karroubi have committed atrocities against the ruling system and the nation and will be barred from running in the June 14 election, unless they repent.


Mousavi and Karroubi led massive street rallies in the aftermath of the 2009 election to protest official election results declaring President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the winner. Opposition supporters claimed monumental vote fraud in Ahmadinejad's favor but their peaceful protest was crushed by security forces.
