Hundreds of Thousands in Tehran Rally

Hundreds of thousands of Mousavi supporters staged a protest rally in Tehran’s Haft-Teer Square at 5:00 pm local time (1230 GMT). The protestors then started a “silent” march from Haft-Teer to Vali Asr Square. The protest ended at 7:00 pm as requested earlier by the organizers.

The protestors were old and young, some with families. Many were wearing the green wristbands and headbands originally associated with Mousavi campaign, now a symbol of the opposition to the government.
