Old U.S. embassy in Tehran
An Iraqi visitor smokes a cigarette near parts of a crashed U.S helicopter at the 13 Aban exhibition in the old U.S Embassy in Tehran, Iran on March 6, 2008. The helicopter wreckage was brought from the desert in Tabas, part of the debris left behind by an aborted U.S. rescue effort. From November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981 a group of militants took over the American embassy in support of Iran's revolution and held diplomats hostage. (UPI Photo/Mohammad Kheirkhah)
