Iran Election Too Close to Call

Iran holds its first run-off presidential election -- a contest that pits a former well-known president who portrays himself as a moderate against a hard-liner who's a staunch supporter of the country's religious rulers. Analysts say the outcome is too close to call and that turn-out will be important.
