Iran's Guardian Council has ruled out the annulment of the June 12th presidential election. A spokesman said the the organization had found no "major fraud or breach in the election". Pro-reform candidates, including Mir Hossein Mousavi, have been demanding fresh elections, saying the ballot was rigged. Mahmoud Ahmedinjejad's landslide victory sparked street protests. And despite the government's crackdown on dissent, anger continues to simmer. +++SYN MAZ+++
