Iran dedicates day of mourning

More than 100,000 people yesterday attended a "day of mourning" rally in Tehran to remember eight people killed while opposing Iran's election result. The rally was called by presidential challenger, Mir Hossein Mousavi. Iran's most influential body has said it is investigating complaints from the three defeated candidates. They say there was widespread fraud in the 12 June poll which re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with almost two-thirds of the vote.
