« Iran: A 5-Minute, 5-Point Reaction to The Events of Ashura | Main | The Latest from Iran (27 December): The Day of Ashura »

Today on EA (27 December 2009)

TOWN CRIERIran: On the holy day of Ashura, coinciding with the 7th day of mourning for Ayatollah Montazeri, thousands of protesters are on the streets of Tehran and other cities throughout Iran. Amidst clashes with security forces, five demonstrators have been killed.

Today's videos are already coming through and we are adding to them continuously, now starting a second set (and now set #3). There is also a link to a detailed map of Tehran to help follow events.

We have a video special on the attack on the Jamaran memorial and the Khatami speech yesterday (26 December).

EA's Scott Lucas has written an open letter to the columnist Charles Krauthammer, saying thanks for his "concern" but "Now Go Away": the people of Iran can manage without "false friends".

We have uncovered a top secret relationship between US President Obama and Ahmadinejad! (but please note we have at times been known to have a joke with our readers).

All the latest news can be read in our live weblog .

Israel: A few days after Israeli PM Netanyahu announced that he would break-up Kadima unless Tzipi Livni joined a national unity government, Haaretz's Nehemia Shtrasler has responded by accusing him of being being "corrupt".

Scott and all EA's staff
There is no words to say thank you to all of you; I wish, that after the "VICTORY", we will be able to welcome you in Iran, meeting each other ( all the EA's readers & all EA's staff) ; it's my dream and hope it won't be "virtual" !
