Ahmadinejad 'leads in Iran election'
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has a substantial lead in Iran's presidential election with about 77% of votes counted, officials say.
Mr Ahmadinejad so far has 65% of the vote and claimed victory in an election that has drawn a large turnout.
However his leading rival, reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, said earlier that he had won by a substantial margin.
Mr Mousavi also complained of a number of voting irregularities.
It would look like my worst fears are becoming a reality. That the ex-terrorist and anti Israel fundlamentalist will remain in office and be a pain in the buttocks in formating any sort of peace in the Middle East.
