  • Description

    Iranian students living in France have demonstrated their support for the occupation of the American Embassy in Teheran. About fifty of them have started a sit-in at the Iranian Embassy in Paris. They moved in on Thursday evening (15 November) saying they intended to stay put for at least five days.

    SYNOPSIS: It was a peaceful demonstration. Armed with banners and portraits of Ayatollah Khomeini the students simply walked in and sat down in the embassy corridors.

    A spokesman for the embassy said they hadn't caused any trouble and wouldn't be expelled. But as the students began their sit in, Djavad Alamir, editor of Iran's leftist opposition newspaper, 'Nameh Rouge' spoke against the events in Teheran.
