ABC News also reported at the World Cup Soccer Game in Tehran, the players and 60,000 in attendance gave a minute of silence in memorial to the victims that died at the WTC. [url]www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-000074125sep14.story[/url] The terror attacks have prompted Iran's official media to provide a rare glimpse of America's human side after two decades of demonizing the U.S. as the "great Satan" and a "paragon of pagan decadence." State TV has been giving full coverage of the events, complete with details of human suffering. Iranian leaders, from reformists to conservatives, have strongly condemned the attacks in an unprecedented expression of sympathy and offered cooperation to fight terrorism. Both the official media and politicians have used terms such as "human catastrophe," "enormous crime," "murderers" and "terrorists" in sympathy with the U.S. Tehran and Washington broke off diplomatic ties after the 1979 revolution toppled the U.S.-backed shah.
