TEHRAN -- Defeated Iranian presidential election candidate Mirhossein Mousavi is not calling on his supporters to stage new street protests on Saturday, an ally told Reuters on Friday.

The ally, who declined to be named, spoke after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned the leaders of the mass street protests seen in Iran following a June 12 disputed presidential election that they would be responsible for any bloodshed.

At a demonstration in the capital on Thursday, Mousavi's supporters carried banners saying they would gather again in downtown Tehran on Saturday afternoon.

"Mousavi has no plans to hold a rally tomorrow or the day after tomorrow and if he decides to hold a rally it will be announced on his website," the ally said.
