Photo From Iran
I'm still impressed that any media can escape from Iran, given the extreme crackdown by the government. Here is one photo taken only minutes ago, from one of our most reliable Twitter sources inside Iran. The rally at the Ghoba mosque has spilled out into the streets, where clashes have ensued.
As always, rumors and unconfirmed reports abound. Was Mousavi set to appear at today's rally? Did Rafsanjani and his family arrive earlier today at the mosque? Were police attempting to turn away crowds, claiming that no official permit was issued? And just how many people have turned out in the streets today? Certainly far more than the 3,000 as stated by the AP.
Fragment, shards, moments. I hope the West hasn't turned its back on Iran. Michael Jackson isn't that important.
