Iran remembers 'founding father'

Mixed reactions as Iranians commemorate 21st anniversary of death of Ayatollah Khomeini.

    Ceremonies across Iran are marking the 21st anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of Iran's Islamic revolution.

    For some Iranians, this is a time to celebrate the revolution and its achievements.

    But others consider it to be an unfortunate anniversary of when Iran changed into a religiously policed and controlled nation.
