More protests planned today in Iran


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran is bracing for another day of massive protests by opponents of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The demonstrations would be held in open defiance of Iran' supreme leader, who has been urging Iranian citizens to unite behind the Islamic state government.

Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi is telling supporters to wear black to show they're mourning last week's alleged election fraud. It would also serve as a tribute to the lives lost during this week's protests.

Today would be the fourth straight day of major marches in Tehran. Mousavi's Web site says he may attend today's gathering at a downtown square.
