An Iranian woman casts her ballot for the parliamentary runoff elections in a polling station at the city of Qods about 12 miles (20 kilometers) west of the capital Tehran, Iran, Friday, April 29, 2016. Iranians voted Friday in the country's parliamentary runoff elections, a key polling that is expected to decide exactly how much power moderate forces backing President Hassan Rouhani will have in the next legislature. The balloting is for the remaining 68 positions in the 290-seat chamber that were not decided in February's general election, in which Rouhani's allies won an initial majority. (AP Photo)TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A semi-official news agency in Iran is reporting that an argument between supporters of hard-liners and reformists in the country escalated into a shooting that wounded four people during the country's runoff election.
