A crisis of authority in Iran - The Economist podcast

Ali Ansari speaks on The Economist Podcast about the Iranian Elections and the ensuing unrest.

The bottom-line is: this is not an unrest that is going to throw over the government, but it is a strong signal to the rulers it cannot mess with the people. It tells also the outside world, Iran is much more diverse that usually assumed.
