Re: CNN: Iran's Leader Ayatollah Khamenei agrees to ballot probe
TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Iran's supreme leader has given permission for a probe into allegations presidential elections were marred by ballot rigging as chaos following hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's declared victory continued for a third day.

The country's government-funded Press TV reported Monday that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged reformist opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi to pursue claims fraud through legal means.

Khameini has already given his blessing to the election result, calling the outcome "a divine miracle," and hailing a record 85 percent turnout as "resistance against oppressors."

Moussavi's supporters Monday defied a government ban on their rallies, gathering for a demonstration at Tehran University.

Witnesses said crowds chanting slogans including "death to the dictator" were amassing at Tehran University despite authorities rejecting a request by Moussavi to hold a nationwide protest. Gallery: Emotions run high after election »

The Iranian capital has been the scene of sporadic crackdowns against protesters amid mass gatherings both in support and against Ahmadinejad, who claims to have won more than 62 percent of Friday's vote.

As protests continued in Iran , international concerns over the election and its aftermath mounted, with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden expressing "doubts", Germany summoning Tehran's ambassador to Berlin and Israel warning of increased threat posed by Iranian nuclear ambitions.

Media rights group Reporters Without Borders has also urged nations to not recognize the results, citing censorship and a crackdown on journalists.

Moussavi's supporters, in messages on social-networking sites, have indicated the protest rallies would continue with or without the blessing of the administration.

Networking sites such as Twitter have been used to give graphic accounts of unrest within Iran, sidestepping the heavy control of official Iranian media.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people around the world have offered support to the opposition protestors on the Internet, urging friends to wear green -- symbolizing Moussavi's campaign -- in solidarity. Watch report on latest violence in Iran »

Ahead of the election, Ahmadinejad and Moussavi appeared to have been facing a close-run vote, with both candidates drawing large crowds of supporters.

The huge gatherings for former prime minister Moussavi, viewed by the West as a moderate in comparison with a religious establishment-backed Ahmadinejad, had prompted speculation Iran's voters were set to oust the incumbent.

Why would the country's top dog urge Moussavi to investigate claims of fraud...when he had just given his blessing to Ahmadinejad as winner?
