Iran vote extended by three hours with huge turnout - Middle East, World - The Independent
"Iranians packed polling stations from boutique-lined streets in north Tehran to rural conservative bastions today for a choice that has divided the nation
At stake is re-election for hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or his replacement by reformer Mir Hossein Mousavi who favours greater freedoms and improved ties with the West.
Crowds formed quickly at many voting sites in areas considered strongholds for both candidates.
Mr Mousavi, who served as prime minister in the 1980s has become the surprise hero of a powerful youth-driven movement."
Whilst im sure everyone in the west is hoping for Mousavi its hard to see the mullahs giving him a free hand.
