Iran today (11 feb) celebrates the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution this year. Today, hundreds of thousands of people in Tehran and other cities participated in government-sponsored marches.
The supporters of Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, took power away on January 11, 1979, the Pahlavi Reza Shah regime, supported by the United States.
The Islamic Revolution in Iran is celebrated every year on February 1, because Khomeini returned to his country on the same day. This ceremony ends on February 11th.
