Iranian anniversary party

Iran sure knows how to throw an anniversary party!

Thousands of Iranians marked the 24th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran by chanting anti-American slogans and burning U.S. and Israeli flags.

Tuesday's turnout was larger than that of previous years, reflecting tensions over President Bush's allegations that Iran supports terrorism and is trying to build nuclear weapons.

Hard-line cleric Ali Akbar Nateq Nouri told the crowd that the Washington is once again meddling in Iran's internal affairs. Many Iranians blame American interference for the events of 1979.

But no worries, Iran's nuclear program is "totally peaceful" and the "programme is neither meant for nuclear weapons nor a part of Tehran`s security doctrine."
