Mousavi supporters rally in Iran, mourn dead

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - A witness says supporters of opposition
leader Mir Hossein Mousavi are protesting in the capital Tehran for
the fourth straight day over the disputed presidential election.
Mousavi called his followers back into the streets of Tehran for
another mass rally Thursday, urging them to wear black to mourn
those killed in clashes. Mousavi claims Friday's election was
rigged in favor of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The call to rally again was in open defiance of the country's
supreme leader, who has urged the nation to unite behind the
Islamic state. It came a day after tens of thousands marched
silently down a main street of Tehran, brandishing posters of
Mousavi and waving V-for-victory signs, amateur video showed. Some
covered their mouths with masks.
