Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Sunday on the United States and Britain to stop interfering with his country's internal affairs. His statement came the day after at least 10 people were killed and others injured in Tehran as police forces cracked down on protesters. Demonstrators have been taking to the streets all week to oppose Ahmadinejad's recent re-election.

Guest host Alison Stewart discusses developments in Iran with Gary Sick, a senior research scholar at Columbia University and former member of the National Security Council, and Rami Khouri, editor-at-large of The Daily Star newspaper in Beirut and director of the Issam Fares Public Policy Institute.
