A protest thousands of miles away is hitting very close to home for one Borderland Iranian. Thousands took to the streets of Tehran again today but this time a much different scene.
Amateur video posted on the internet today showed tens of thousands of opposition supporters demonstrating to mourn those killed in protests this week. Only slight murmurs could be heard from the crowd. This, after last week's re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad caused an uproar throughout the country.
Iranians in El Paso are watching the turmoil unfold as NewsChannel 9's Adrienne Alvarez found out. The fear being stirred thousands of miles away is still being felt here.
