PARIS (AFP) Oct 10, 2003
Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi told a news conference Friday that she opposed any foreign intervention in Iran.

"The fight for human rights is conducted in Iran by the Iranian people and we are against any foreign intervention in Iran," she said.

The 56-year-old lawyer and human rights activist was speaking after earlier being awarded the Nobel peace prize, becoming the first ever Muslim woman to get the honour.
