Tens of thousands of people have joined a rally in central Tehran to celebrate the re-election of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Crowds thronged the main thoroughfare, Vali Asr street, waving Iranian flags and chanting in jubilation.
The president's closest opponent in the election, Mir Hossein Mousavi, has lodged an official appeal against the result amid continuing angry protests.
"Some people want democracy only for their own sake," he said, referring to his critics both inside and outside of Iran.
"Some want elections, freedom, a sound election. They recognise it only as long as the result favours them."

We in America are getting mostly the news about the pro-Mousavi protests. Our media gives us the impression that hardly anyone is for Ahmadinejad. This suits our western ideas of democracy and this is what we like to hear.
