Iran Unrest

Iran has been praising Egyptian protestors while cracking down on their own in recent days.  It remains to be seen whether Iran will be the next country to see a major upheaval in its government.

National unrest odds were posted recently at Bookmaker.com, North America’s oldest established online gambling website.

Yemen, Jordan, Turkey, Algeria, Iran, Israel and Palestine were among the favorites to succumb to unrest.

Much of the news coming out of Iran related to protestor crackdown has come from the Twitter universe since reporters are essentially banned from the country (or at least banned from reporting on the potential crisis). 

Protesters where confronted by security forces w/ tear gas, batons, rubber bullets, as well as live ammunition. 1 protester killed.

On Monday, thousands of Iranians gathered in Tehran to demonstrate in solidarity with Egyptian and Tunisian protesters, who recently toppled their own regimes. Videos from Tehran reveal that protesters have remained in the streets past nightfall.  A BBC reporter described central Tehran as "total chaos".
