Supporters of the losing candidates in the recent disputed presidential election had planned to hold a mass march in central Tehran Saturday. But after a hard-line speech of Iran's supreme leader Friday, a group of liberal clerics called off their planned march. Iran's police command issued a statement that no rallies will be lawful anywhere in the country.

Guest host Alison Stewart speaks with NPR's Mike Shuster in Dubai about the latest developments.
