Iran continues shift to hard-line stance

Ten thousand protesters today chanted “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” and burned flags in front of the former U.S. embassy in Tehran.

In the same article, the AP reports that Iran is removing 40 ambassadors from their posts, including moderates that favored closer relations with the West. And according to a diplomatic leak from Vienna, Iran agreed to open a secret military nuclear facility to inspectors, while at the same time announcing its intention to “process a new batch of uranium that could be used to make atomic weapons”.
