The video shows the arrival of a car with a video crew on top of it as the crowd chants “Ya Hussein! Mir Hussein!” which suggests that it may have been shot during the reported arrival at the mourning ceremony by the opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi. This chant, which has been used throughout the opposition protests, makes reference to the Shiite martyr Hussein and Mr. Moussavi, who shares his name.
