Clerics group calls off Saturday rally - state TV

TEHRAN, June 20 (Reuters) - State television said a group of moderate clerics had called off a planned protest rally in Tehran on Saturday against Iran’s disputed election results because no permission had been granted.

The announcement, hours before the rally was due to go ahead at 4 p.m. (1130 GMT), contradicted a statement from an aide to one of the defeated election candidates who earlier said the rally would go ahead. (Editing by Jon Boyle)
