Iran's volunteer Islamic militiamen are vowing to form a human chain along the length of the country's borders as a show of force against international pressure on Tehran's atomic program.
Iran faces referral to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions after failing to convince the world its nuclear fuel program is intended for power stations rather than warheads.
Mohammad Hejazi, head of the volunteer basij militia, swore he had enough people to girdle the country.
'Nine million basij will form a human chain around Iran on November 26 in support of the country's right to peaceful nuclear energy,' he told state television Wednesday.
