Iranian authorities have granted limited visiting rights to reformist leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, under house arrest following protests sparked by a contested 2009 election, two media outlets reported Monday.The protests -- known as "the sedition" by hardliners -- followed allegations of rigging in the 2009 presidential election won by hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.Citing Ghasem Mirzaie Nikou, a member of a parliamentary committee that lobbies for the leaders' release, said the "daughters, the grandchildren and the two sons-in-law of Mr Mousavi and Mrs Rahnavard can visit them normally".He told the outlet he hoped other family members would also be granted access.
