IRAN: Demonstrators rally against Ahmadinejad at Tehran mosque
Amateur videotape has just surfaced purporting to show a raucous demonstration outside a mosque in northeastern Tehran today. The rally was in support of defeated presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who lost a June 12 vote to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in an election marred by allegations of vote fraud.
Supporters of Mousavi gathered at the mosque for a commemoration of the deaths of 72 Iranian politicians in a bombing 28 years ago.
According to one demonstrator, numerous opposition figures attended the rally, including presidential candidate Mehdi Karroubi, Mousavi’s wife Zahra Rahnavard, and both the daughter and wife of Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.
