iran protestCAIRO -Iran’s supreme leader says the government won’t give in to pressures over the disputed presidential election, effectively closing the door to compromise with the opposition. Iran also said it was considering downgrading ties with Britain, which it has accused of spying and fomenting days of unprecedented street protests over the vote. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with lawmakers that: “Neither the system nor the people will give in to pressures at any price.” Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi claims that hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stole the June 12 presidential election through massive fraud. He has called for annulling the results and holding a new vote.      ap.com
