New Iran protests over elections

The defeated presidential candidate, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has called a further mass rally in Tehran - urging his followers to wear black in mourning for the alleged election fraud and the lives lost in recent protests.

The demonstration comes despite an increasing government clampdown on the opposition following the disputed election.
