Iran's Supreme Leader Names Mediator In Power Struggle

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is said to have appointed a mediator to resolve disputes within the government -- including the ongoing dispute between President Mahmud Ahmadinejad and the parliament, which has also challenged the supreme leader's authority.

Khamenei named his ally and former judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmud Shahrudi to head an arbitration body charged with mediating the disputes, Iranian agency reports say.
