At least one person has been killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up near the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini.
An Iranian police representative stated : " A terrorist detonated his explosive vest in the Ayatollah Khomeini shrine causing damage in one section of it."
Some protesters feel that the suicide attack was orchestrated by the government.
Today, the police used tear gas & water cannons against thousands of protesters in an attempt to block access to Revolution Square in Tehran. A protester said:" Now it is tear gas, I am sure it won't take them long to start using other kind of ammunition."
Mousavi declined to meet the Guardian Council, Iran highest legislative body, concerning the voting irregularities. The Council would have only be willing to do a partial sample recount representing not even 10% of the votes. Mousavi posted a message on his web site, today, requesting a re-run of the election.
Despite the crack down, it seems that the protests will continue. A sign of this came in the form of protesters screaming " Death to the dictator" from Tehran's roof tops at dawn today.
This is increasingly turning into a challenge of the Supreme Leader's autocratic authority and not only an opposition to Ahmadinejad.
Mousavi keeps his supporters informed by posting news updates on his web site. To read the updates click on the title of this post.
