Protests Continue In Iran

Thousands of supporters of Mir Hossein Moussavi-Iran's top opposition presidential candidate-protested in silence today as they marched the streets wearing black.

Moussavi addressed the peaceful crowd of thousands, asking for a new vote in the election that was called in favor of presidential incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The government called the election last Friday in Ahmadinejad's favor, a move that sparked violent protests.

In Washington D.C., Iranian-Americans also took to the streets. Angered by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, they protested his reception and recognition of Ahmadinejad as the Iranian president.
