Iran's supreme leader acknowledges the country's Islamic rulers have lost some supporters in the turmoil following the disputed June presidential elections.
The remarks by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday were his first public comments since street clashes between opposition supporters and security forces on Sunday left at least eight dead.
Khamenei blamed the pro-reform opposition leaders for Iran's problems. He said "the reality in the society is that as some (supporters) dropped out, twice that number joined (us)."
