Government buildings are being draped in black cloth. 2. All Islamic Iranian TV announcers have suddenly turned to wearind all black clothing.

In Iran blue is the color of mourning, not black. (In much of the rest of the Islamic world white is the color of mourning, except for Turkey where it's purple).

Alan was still correct, Pravda was reporting it as well this morning.

But thanks for the info, I didn’t know all that!
