Former Iranian ministers, vice presidents, and politicians have gone on trial in Tehran.

They are among about 100 people facing charges for alleged crimes against Iran's national security in the aftermath of protests that followed June's disputed presidential election.

The country's Revolutionary Court is to decide their guilt or innocence.

Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazely reports on the opening day of a trial in which the defendants are accused of having plotted post-election unrest for more than a year.
