Tehran, Iran, June 20, 2009--An Iranian demonstrator stands near a burning bus during clashes with police in the embattled capital.

Since the June 12 election, which was declared a victory for incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets in protest, believing Mir Hussein Moussavi to be the winner.

The protests have continued despite supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's ultimatum to end the demonstrations.
