Iranians in Dubai protest against presidential election results in their own country
Time Out Dubai Staff
More than 200 supporters of the defeated presidential candidate Mirhossein Mousavi gathered outside the Iranian consulate in Dubai for the second day in a row to protest the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a June 12 poll.
More disguised protestors raise their arms in protest during the rally. Iran's top legislative body has said it is prepared to hold a partial recount but has ruled out annulling the poll.
A Mousavi supporter with his face covered holds a placard in the air during the demonstration. Mousavi, who lost to Ahmadinejad by a wide margin, has lodged a formal appeal in Tehran calling for the results to be annulled.
A demonstrator standing in front of a placard that reads: 'Where is my vote' adds their voice to the shouting and chanting.
The Dubai protests are much more controlled than the violent rallies seen in Tehran over the past few days, which have been the biggest street protests since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
A protester holds up a picture of Ahmadinejad wearing military uniform emblazoned with a swastika on which is written: 'Down with dictator'.
'Where is my vote?' asks one protester who has covered his face with a bright green scarf.
Protesters stand behind a barricade outside the Iranian consulate. Many of them carry anti-Ahmadinejad placards and signs.
