TEHRAN, May 23, 2002 (AFP) - A 42-year-old Tehran woman insists she is a daughter of the late shah of Iran and was switched at birth because the former ruling family wanted a boy, Abrar newspaper reported Thursday. The woman, identified only by her first name, Massumeh, is suing the royal family in a Tehran family tribunal for her birth right.

She was born on the same day and in the same Tehran hospital as Reza Pahlavi, the shah's elder son, the paper said. Massumeh told the judge that her real name was Fumika Pahlavi and that she was switched by her disappointed parents shortly after birth for a boy, Reza Pahlavi, who now lives in the United States.

She asked the judge to order genetic tests to prove her claim, but instead he placed the woman provisionally in a rest home after the father told the court she had mental problems. He suspended judgement pending a verdict from doctors of Massumeh's state.
