We are receiving video and first-hand accounts of what is happening on the streets of tehran and other Iranian cities today. It's a crucial anniversary, especially within the context of the bitterness that followed Iran's disputed presidential election: ten years ago today, thousands of students took to the streets in the biggest ever anti-establishment movement of the Islamic Republic's history.
Today, we are hearing that police are using tear gas and firing in the air to disperse protestors, who've come out in defiance of orders not to demonstrate.
We'll have the latest.
We'll also go to Italy, site of the G8 summit, for the latest on industrialized nations' promises to control climate change and contain global warming. President Obama talked of a "historic consensus." But Ban Ki-Moon, the U.N. Secretary General, slammed the G8 for not going far enough and environmental groups like Greenpeace were also critical.
There's been more shocking violence in Afghanistan and Iraq today. We're live in both countries' capitals with Atia Abawi and Michael Ware.
Plus, for its first appearance on CNN, Richard Quest will introduce us to Jaguar's newest model: the 2010 Jaguar XJ. Does it live up to the hype? Now that Jaguar is owned by India's Tata, what has changed for the luxury carmaker. And, just asking, but is this the best time to unveil a new luxury car?
Tweet me your thought on the new XJ @halagorani.
That and the rest of the day's top stories, as always.
