Fox News reporting shots fired in Tehran and bomb blast strikes near shrine of Iran’s revolutionary founder

This is breaking and the situation is fluid.  Fox is reporting that shots were fired and have still shots of what looks like a police state in Tehran.

The Associated Press reports that by witness accounts there are protesters in the streets.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Witnesses say protesters are rallying in Tehran despite a government threat of harsh action if they take to the streets again to demand a new election.

The witnesses tell The Associated Press that supporters of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi are holding what they describe as small rallies in open defiance of the country’s supreme leader.

Web sites run by supporters of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi called for street protests at 4 p.m. (7:30 a.m. EDT, 1130 GMT) but the candidate himself issued no public statement.

Fire trucks took up positions in Revolution Square, the site of the planned gathering, and riot police surrounded Tehran University, the site of recent clashes between protesters and security forces, one witness said.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Please feel free to post updates as they are available.  I will be offline most of the day.
