Several hundred Iranians have demonstrated in Paris for a second straight day against violence in their homeland and the outcome of last week's presidential election. The demonstrators held up banners saying "Freedom of Expression in Iran," ''Liberty and democracy for Iran" or "Where is my vote" at a peaceful protest near the Eiffel Tower. The protesters vowed Wednesday to continue their support of opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi. In Rome, about 300 people gathered to show solidarity with the pro-reformist demonstrations in Iran. The demonstration was organized by the Radical Party, a tiny party that champions human rights, and by a leftist newspaper. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the winner of last Friday's presidential election. Iran's opposition claims the vote was fraudulent.
