In Iran, supporters of opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi will turn Tehran into a sea of black today, as thousands plan to march in dark clothes mourning those killed in protests in the aftermath of presidential elections last week.
Our reporter in Tehran, Reza Sayeh, has been told by officials that CNN cannot cover these demonstrations and is only allowed to file one report out of the country today. It’s unclear if we will see him in our show tonight for this reason, but we are trying to get this story via other internet technologies and experts on Iran.
We had an exclusive interview planned with Angelina Jolie and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today. Both women are in DC and meant to attend a World Refugee Day event.
Anderson was going to interview both of them after this event. Secretary Clinton has been sidelined, though, this time not by dog eat dog politics, but rather, a tough fall she had outside the White House which caused her to break an elbow. OUCH. This means she won’t be at the event or sitting down with Anderson.
We will continue our interview with Angelina Jolie- she will have the spot light to herself and explain the plight of refugees. The situation is more urgent this year due to the global economic crisis which is reducing aid budgets. Nic Robertson will offer one snap shot from Pakistan where the refugee situation is in full crisis-mode, to accompany the interview with Mrs. Jolie.
And we have more pot coverage for you tonight. Drew Griffin couldn’t believe his eyes when he walked into a suburban home and found out it was transformed into a drug factory. On the outside, idyllic houses w/manicured lawns, fences and gardeners paid to trim the bushes. Inside, wall to wall marijuana grow houses. Wait till you catch this!
Hey, I really hope the weather is better in your neck of the woods than NYC. Given that heavy thunderstorms and tornadoes are hitting many parts of the country, though, I would guess not. Everyone grab their umbrellas, brace for the weather, and have a great day. And we’ll see you tonight at 10pet!
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
