A British news report from 1989 showed scenes from Ayatollah Khomeini’s funeral. The report shows the chaotic outpouring of emotion that surrounded the Ayatollah’s death, exemplified by a two day mass vigil – the largest ever gathering of people in the capital city of Tehran. It discusses the significance of the Ayatollah’s death, his importance to Iranians as both a spiritual and political leader, and what it might mean regarding Middle-Eastern and world politics.
