Mousavi Rallies Facebook Followers

Social networking's role in Iran is only growing more critical: On a Facebook page created for Mousavi, the leader's wife, Zahra Rahnavard, declared today that supporters should show up for a controversial protest, despite threats by police that demonstrators will be arrested and widespread fears of violence. The wall post was broadcast to Mousavi's nearly 70,000 Facebook followers. A day after Iran's supreme leader, Ayatolla Ali Khamenei, bluntly cut off any compromise over the country's disputed election results, tensions have been rising in Tehran over whether the protests will continue.
