US President Barack Obama has been "moved" by the television images of people in Iran taking to the street in protest, the White House said Monday. "I think he has been moved what we've seen on television. I think particularly so by images of women in Iran who have stood up for their right to demonstrate, to speak out and to be heard," said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. Gibbs added that Obama continued to have "concerns and questions" about the way Iran's presidential election was conducted this month.
