Iran erupted in protest yesterday, reviving this summer's unrest over the disputed election of Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. While the protests were not as large in scale as those that followed the June election, people took to the streets in a greater number of cities and towns. The occasion was National Student Day, a commemoration of three students killed while protesting the Shah in 1953. We talk about the latest developments with Borzou Daragahi.
