Supporters of Ahmadinejad’s opponent, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, gathered at a mosque in northeastern Tehran during an annual commemoration for 72 Iranian politicians killed in a bombing 28 years ago.

According to a witness, who has previously provided accurate information to The Times, numerous opposition figures attended the rally, including presidential candidate Mehdi Karroubi; Mousavi’s wife, Zahra Rahnavard; and both the daughter and wife of Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a Mousavi supporter.
