Iranians in Seoul on Wednesday took advantage of a World Cup football qualifier to denounce their government amid allegations of election rigging at home. Dozens of Iranians staged a protest Wednesday ahead of a match between Iran and South Korea to condemn the weekend election results that gave President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a second term. They unfurled a banner that read "Go To Hell Dictator" and chanted "Compatriots, we will be with you to the end with the same heart." Protesters said they would display the banner during the match. Violent protests flared and allegations of voter fraud erupted in Iran following the announcement Saturday that Ahmadinejad had beaten pro-reform candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.
