'Today' January 6, 2010 - Iran Political Violence

Since last year's controversial presidential elections, Iran has been wracked with politcal unrest - with hundreds of street protests - both anti and pro government. Many of these protests turned violent with several deaths and widespread property damage. Tehran has accused Western interests of interference. So what is driving the turmoil - and is the end in sight?

'Today' invited a panel of experts to discuss the developments.
