Topics: Politics


David Barrow

Tehran, Iran's capital, was in a state of revolt on Jan. 19, 1979. The Shah had fled the country. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Shiite Muslim cleric who had worked for years to overthrow the Shah, was still in exile in Paris, but vowing to return and form an Islamic government. A million people took to the streets to cheer on Khomeini and denounce the Shah.
