Call for Iran protesters' release
Former Iranian President Ali Akbar Rafsanjani has called for the release of people jailed after protesting at the result of the recent election.
In his first Friday sermon since the vote, he also said large numbers of Iranians still doubted its result.
Iranian police fired tear gas to disperse opposition supporters gathered for prayers at Tehran University.
There were chants of support for defeated election candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, who attended the prayers.
Mr Mousavi has demanded a re-run of the vote and described the new government as illegitimate.
It would seem there is still civil unrest and now the supreme leader has to whiten his profile and start looking as being the good guy. He must to survive and I am sure he will bend and set free the protestors well at least some of them. .
The people are said to want prober democracy without religious dictatorship.
In the end I hope the people get their way but the regime is a ridged one the media under the thumb and it seems that the status quo will not change for a while. Ali Akbar Rafsanjani is bidding to be the hero of the people and the wind I am sure will be pulled from his sail.
