Description

On January 16, 1979, in the face of increasing civil unrest in Iran and anger towards the monarchy, the Shah fled the country, paving the way for the return of exiled religious leader, Ayatollah Khomeini. Khomeini and his forces would soon overthrow the secular government, establishing the current Islamic Republic and beginning a period of tension with America that endures to this day.
