It has been an extraordinary few days in Iran.
A disputed election. Rival claims of victory. Mass rallies. Mass protests. A crackdown. Violence and uncertainty.
Throughout the weekend and into today, GlobalPost correspondents have been on the scene, in Qom, Tehran and elsewhere — using mobile phones, email and other means to help tell this unfolding story from a tense and difficult reporting environment.
We'll be using this space to keep you updated on the latest from the street, as well as analysis and color from what is turning out to be a key test for Iran, its 72 million people, and perhaps the world.
