British police say about 200 demonstrators have turned out in front of the Iranian embassy in London to protest the presidential election results out of Tehran. Police say no one was arrested. Many of the demonstrators held up signs saying "Where is my vote?" Many Iranians living in London voted by absentee ballot in Friday's election. But the protesters who turned out in front of the embassy Saturday said they didn't think the votes were legitimately counted. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed victory in Friday's election over rival Mir Hossein Mousavi, who said the vote was tainted by widespread fraud.
