A member of Iranian opposition movement has been detained, a website said on Friday.

The Etemad-e Melli website said Mohammad Ozlati-Moghaddam, a member of Mirhossein Mousavi's campaign headquarters staff ahead of the June election, was detained in his home earlier this week after it was searched.

The Etemad-e Melli website is the Internet site of defeated candidate Mehdi Karoubi's party.

It did not give a source for the report and there was no immediate comment from Iranian officials.

Opposisiton websites reported the detentions of senior reformers Alireza Hosseini Beheshti and Morteza Alviri on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Mousavi urged his supporters to keep their calm after the detentions.
