Iranians visit polls today to elect president
Iranian presidential elections will take place today, June 10, 2009, between incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and challenger Mir-Hossein Mousavi. The victory of the moderate March 14 coalition in Lebanon's recent elections may be an indicator of the declining popularity of extremist or hardline political groups in the Middle East. Ahmadinejad has been under fire for Iran's poor current economic situation, marked by high inflation. Updates to follow.
