Delicate Dance of the Bodies Politic

In a TV interview Mr Obama said there might not be much difference between the policies of President Ahmadinejad and rival Mir Hossein Mousavi. Mr Mousavi's supporters have continued street protests despite the threat of government force and earlier bloodshed. BBC correspondents in Tehran say the mood in the city is tense and angry. Tough new restrictions have been imposed on foreign media in Iran.

But despite government attempts to control the flow of information out of the country, Iranians have been using the internet to send images and personal accounts of the protests around the world. Mr Obama said he believed Iranian voices should be heard, although he added that he did not want to be seen to be "meddling".
