During the manifestation on Friday we noticed from the other side of the street with their digital camcorders. One claimed to be “just a tourist” sightseeing and taking pictures of his favorite scenes in London. A friend from BBC World Service positively identified both of them as members of a particular I.R. government agency responsible (among other tasks) for documenting interesting sights and sounds for their employers in Tehran.
