An Iranian opposition leader is demanding permission from authorities for a rally to counter accusations his supporters desecrated a photo of the revered founder of the Islamic Republic. The opposition accuses the government of staging video of someone destroying Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's picture during student demonstrations on Dec. 7 to discredit their pro-reform movement. The government has used the footage to marshal its supporters into the streets to vilify the opposition, and plans more demonstrations on Friday. The Web site of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi said Thursday that authorities have not responded to his request to stage a rally to demonstrate that his supporters also respect Khomeini.
