After the Egypt’s recent “revolution”, protests in North African and Middle Eastern countries strengthened. Tensions in Yemen, Tunisia, and now in Iran is raising.

According to Financial Times report US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Tehran should grant its citizens the same reforms as have been seen in Egypt.

“Let me, clearly and directly, support the aspirations of the people who are in the streets in Iran today … What we see happening in Iran today is a testament to the courage of the Iranian people, and an indictment of the hypocrisy of the Iranian regime – a regime which over the last three weeks has constantly hailed what went on in Egypt,” she said.
