Rumors that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, has died began circulating yesterday in Tehran’s bazaar. Today, Iranian bloggers report an “abnormal atmosphere in the city” and increased presence of plainclothes agents in the capital.
There is supposed to be a formal announcement tomorrow morning (Tehran time) and currently the official regime news agency "Seda va Sima" are being draped in black. Updates are rapidly coming into the Remixx World! digital coffers.
According to a bulletin from the Greens (Moussavi/Karroubi et al), there are widespread rumors in the Tehran Bazaar that Khamenei has died. The Greens say they cannot confirm it, but that there is an “abnormal atmosphere” in the streets, which almost certainly means there are more security people than usual.
The bazaar will apparently be closed tomorrow, and perhaps Friday as well, pending developments.
Until this story is officially confirmed, take it for what it is.
