Iran's prime minister, Hussein Moussavi, withdrew his resignation under orders from the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini but hinted at wide splits in Tehran's leadership. Moussavi told Khomeini in a letter that he agreed to retract his resignation "out of concern for Islam and the revolution and the interests of the country," the Islamic Republic News Agency said. But he was quoted by Tehran Radio as citing "difficulties in the decision-making process in the executive."
