The BBC confirms a march is taking place in Tehran involving “tens of thousands”. Not surprisingly, on Twitter the number is quoted in the millions. “Tehran is at a standstill. All major routes jammed with people,” says persiankiwi on Twitter. Brave people.
The BBC, quoting AFP, says Moussavi told the demonstrators he was ready to take part in a new election. “The vote of the people is more important than Moussavi or any other person.”
So far everything appears peaceful, but there are disturbing rumours of violence at similar protests in Mashad and Ahvaz.
