Speculation intensifies over Iran political situation

Tensions rise over alleged political feud at highest level of government.

    Iran is rife with speculation that president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be about to resign over a feud with the country's supreme leader.

    Last month Ahmadinejad sacked Iran's intelligence chief, Heydar Moslehi, in a move that the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei quickly overruled.

    Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari explains the situation from the Iranian capital, Tehran.
