Iranians in Paris demonstrated for a third straight day on Thursday against violence in their homeland and to support those contesting the disputed presidential election. Reporters without Borders, the media advocacy group, also held a rally across from the Iranian Embassy to protest a crackdown on the media by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government. Some 30 Iranian protesters gathered near the National Assembly in central Paris held up banners, including one that said "Mullahs Terrorists." They chanted "Bye Bye dictator." Protests were expected in Stockholm and London, as well as another protest in Paris later.
