Fifth Day of Election Protests in Iran

Hosted by

Iran's government has expanded restrictions on foreign reporters and accused the US of interfering in its domestic affairs. But the word is out that protesters against presidential election results defied the government for another day. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has been directly challenged by opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who has told supporters to continue demonstrations despite orders to pursue his demands through the electoral system. We hear about the ongoing protests in Iran and response from the US.
