Turmoil persists in Iran following the re-election of Ahmadinejad as president, but how is the situation perceived from abroad? France 24 journalists in the United States, Lebanon, Iraq and Israel shed some light on the matter.

The protests following the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran have certainly not gone unnoticed by the country’s neighbours. France 24’s Lucas Menget in Iraq, Lucy Fielder in Lebanon and Annette Young in Israel describe the feeling in each of those countries. And from the United States, France 24 correspondent Guillaume Meyer explains how the world’s leading power is reacting to this controversial election.


In nearby Iraq – which is, like Iran, under Shi'ite leadership – the population seems to be experiencing a certain kind of relief at seeing the weakening of the Iranian power in the region, Lucas Menget explains.


Reporting from the US, France 24’s Washington correspondent Guillaume Meyer emphasizes the Obama administration’s great caution and its apparent determination to avoid interference.
