Iran reform leader says he's under pressure to drop challenge

The declared winner of Iran's disputed election is tossing some sharp criticism at President Barack Obama. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Obama has "been trapped and follows the same path" as former President Bush. Meantime, the key opposition leader says he's being pressured to drop his election challenge. Mir Hossein Mousavi says on his official Web site that his access to people is being restricted. Mousavi has alleged massive fraud in Iran's June 12 presidential election and insists he is the rightful winner.
