"Key Test" of Protestors' Resolve

Supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi, Iran's defated reformist presidential candidate, have called for protesters to gather outside parliament in Tehran in defiance of government orders for protesters to stay off the streets.

The call for the rally in the Iranian capital's main square at 1600 local time on Wednesday came after Iranian authorities reportedly deployed more security to break-up any gatherings and quell further protests.

The move will be a key test of whether the current crackdown on demonstrations by the government will keep protesters at home.
