Violent campaign

Iranian <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PERLL001899" title="Mahmoud Ahmadinejad" href="/topic/politics/government/mahmoud-ahmadinejad-PERLL001899.topic">President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad</a> waves a national flag as he delivers a speech during an electoral campaign meeting in Tehran on Sunday. Iranian security officials defused a bomb planted on a domestic passenger plane, officials said, the latest incident of violence ahead of next month's presidential election. The recent attacks, mainly a powerful bomb attack on a mosque in Zahedan in southeastern Iran in which 25 people were killed this week, are reminiscent of a similar outbreak of violence just days before Iran's last presidential election in 2005 which brought Ahmadinejad to power.
