people took up arms and managed to capture the terrorists. some civilians were martyred in the clashes. the supreme leader said the islamic administration in iran is a blessing from the almighty thanks to the aspiration of the sacred personality of the late imam Khomeini.

the leader arrived in amol at 9:50 hours local times (5:00 gmt) and was accorded warm welcome by the mazandarani people. the crowd of people lining up the stree four kilometers to greet the leader caused the leader's motorcade to stop several time on its way to shahid chamran stadium, the venue for the meeting. the young population and revolutionary mazandarani citizens encircled the car carrying ayatollah Khamene’i.
