Mousavi rejects recount promise

According to sources in Iran, Mir Hossein Mousavi has rejected the offer of a recount. Good call. The ballot boxes will have been well and truly stuffed by now.

Iran is in turmoil right now, demonstrators have been killed and the government is doing what it can to crack down on protests against the rigged election.

There are also rumours that Mir Hossein Mousavi has called off a demonstration today because of fears of staged violence.

See my previous post for twitter news.

The BBC has this.

Benedict, was chatting to a friend who has also been following developments in Iran.
I have just recently started to read up on the turbulent recent history of this country. Any chance of an article about Mousavi, and his political history? My friend seems to think he was much more hard line previously, and was involved in the Iraq/Iran war.
