Iran's hardline president will honor an American scholar's request to be buried in a historic Iranian city when he dies, the state broadcasting company said. Richard Nelson Frye, an 87-year-old professor emeritus of Iranian and Central Asian studies at Harvard University, said his desire to be buried in Iran dates to the time of the shah in the 1970s and he had made the request to previous Iranian leaders with no success. He has yet been informed of the decision by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but he expects to get that when he visits the Iranian mission to the United Nations on Monday. "It's been a long process and finally they have come through," he told The Associated Press Thursday from his home in the central Massachusetts town of Brimfield.
