A dramatic show of strength from the opposition2 in Iran. Leading reformist cleric Ayatollah Ali Rafsanjani spoke3 during Friday prayers for the first time in weeks.

A funeral is going to be held today for a Florida couple known for adopting special-needs children. Bryd Melanie and Billing were murdered last week in a home invasion robbery in Pensacola.

Harley-Davidson's ride has hit another recession pothole8. The company says it is cutting another 1000 employees. Those layoffs9 come on top of about 1500 job cuts announced earlier this year.
