TEHRAN, Dec. 20 — "As protests broke out last week at a prestigious university here, cutting short a speech by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad......"
"The protest, punctuated by shouts of “Death to the dictator,” was the first widely publicized outcry against Mr. Ahmadinejad, one that was reflected Friday in local elections, where voters turned out in droves to vote for his opponents."
