CAIRO – Iran's opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi says on his official Web site that his access to people is being restricted and that he is being pressured to withdraw his election challenge.
Mousavi has alleged massive fraud in Iran's June 12 presidential election and insists he is the rightful winner.
According to his Web site Kalemeh, Mousavi said there were "recent pressures on me aimed at withdrawing" the challenge."
He also said that his "access to people is completely restricted," the site said.
Iran's supreme leader has declared hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the winner, and said the election will not be reversed.
