TEHRAN,Iran (AP) - A top aide of Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi has handed over a list of 69 victims of the post-election crackdown to parliament.

Ali Reza Beheshti told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the list also includes 220 detained and should by no means be considered exhuastive.

Beheshti said the names came from the families of the victims and there were more coming all the time.

The list, which was submitted Monday, included only those they could verify, he added.

The Iranian parliament is probing the post-election unrest in which officials say some 30 were killed. Human rights groups say it was much higher.
