Iranian-Americans gather in front of the Iranian Interest Section in Washington, DC

While Iranians around the world are protesting in solidarity with their compatriots in Iran, Iranian-Americans in Washington, DC show their support by protesting in front of the Iranian Interest Section on Wisconsin Ave in NW.

Meanwhile Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. hopes the outcome of the election reflects the “genuine will and desire” of the Iranian people. Also keeping a close eye on the alleged irregularities in the tallying of votes is the U.S. administration, said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.

“At a joint appearance with Clinton, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon said his country was ‘deeply concerned’ by reports of irregularities in the election.”
