Iran celebrates Hassan Rouhani victory in presidential election

Supporters of the reformist-backed cleric Hassan Rouhani have taken to the streets to celebrate his victory in Iran's presidential election.

Mr Rouhani secured just over 50% of the vote, narrowly avoiding the need for a run-off election.

Mohsen Asgari in Tehran says there was a big drive to encourage voters to take part in the election.
