A rural view of Iran's politics

Countryside remains calm a world away from post-election tensions in big cities.

    Iranians are still paying the price of violence that followed last year's disputed presidential election.

    Many protesters remain in custody and some are facing execution.

    Nazanine Moshiri has more.
