Iran to conduct partial recount as protests turn deadly

Four days after Iran’s disputed presidential election, the Islamic leadership said on Tuesday that it will conduct at least a partial recount.

Iran’s media said that several people were killed in Monday’s protests, held by supporters of the opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi. The demonstrations represented one of the greatest challenges to Iran’s Islamic government since it came to power three decades ago.

Mousavi’s supporters held another peaceful rally on Tuesday, as did thousands backing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Geneive Abdo, a fellow in foreign policy at The Century Foundation, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the recount, how the protests will play out and the long-term impact on the Iranian political landscape and Iranian-American relations.

Hi Diana,

This is Katie with Worldfocus.

You won’t be able to find the Deutsche Welle individual segment on our website because of copyright restrictions with our partners; however, we would like to figure out why you aren’t able to play the full show on our video player.

We have had a few complaints from users but have been unable to reproduce the problem — may I ask you a few questions?

– what version of Flash do you have installed?
– What operating system (Windows/Mac OSX/etc) do you use?
– What browser (and version) are you using?
– What do you see when you press play on the video player (is there a message?)?

If you have time, it would really help us out and we can figure out how to get the show working for you!




Your web site isn’t functioning. I want the text of your June 16. 2009 piece from Deutsche Welle on “Who Rules Iran?” I can’t get the full June 16 show to play or find this segment specifically.
