The designated successor to the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini called on Tehran to change the world's image of Iranians as killers who "frightened the world," Iran's news agency reported. The remarks of the Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri echoed recent calls by other Iranian leaders for critical self-examination as the Islamic revolution moves into its second decade. "On many occasions, we showed obstinacy, shouted slogans and frightened the world," the 64-year-old cleric said.

Iran's supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, is continuing to make a good recovery after an operation last Tuesday and started taking liquid food orally Saturday, the Iranian news agency IRNA said. It said the 89-year-old leader is "doing perfectly well" after surgery to stop internal bleeding. Meanwhile, the Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri, who has been ousted as Khomeini's designated successor, resumed teaching Saturday at Qom theological college, IRNA said. The news agency said Montazeri opened his class with prayers for Khomeini's full recovery.
