The "Day of Mourning" Protests in Iran

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Protesters are beginning to gather in Tehran for the "Day of Mourning" called for by opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi. The planned sit-in is meant to memorialize those killed by government forces in earlier protests. To paint the scene in Tehran, we are joined by Farnaz Fassihi, Deputy Bureau Chief for the Middle East for the Wall Street Journal.
