Iranians vote in parliamentary election

Voters in Iran are taking part in elections to choose the 290 members of the legislative chambers, the Majlis.

It is the first poll since the 2009 presidential elections, which the opposition say were rigged in favour of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The vote is widely viewed as a contest between his supporters and those of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
