Hamed Saber, a prominent Iranian photo-blogger and computer scientist  and winner of a Bronze medal in an international science competition, was arrested for unknown reasons on 21 June 2010 in Tehran while walking in the street. A friend has informed us that it was the first time Hamed was arrested. The same source said several of Hamed's photos of the Iranian protest movement have been published in foreign magazines without his knowledge.

Hamed is also the developer of “Access Flickr“, a Firefox internet browser extension that bypasses filters on the photo-sharing website Flickr in Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, China and other locations where it is banned. 

Aftab News reported on 9th of August that Iranian photo-blogger, Hamed Saber, was released on bail.
