EC chairman, members pay tribute to late Imam Khomeini

IRNA – Chairman of the Expediency Council Ayatollah Seyyed Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi and the EC members attended the late Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum on Wednesday to pay homage to the founder of the Islamic Revolution and the martyrs.

The day of Imam Khomeini’s return to Iran from exile (Feb 1, 1979) marks the beginning of the Ten-Day Dawn in ceremonies which culminate with the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11, 1979.

The Iranian people toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, ending 2,500 years of monarchy in the country.
