L.A. Daily News - Latest News from the Associated Press: "TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's hard-line constitutional watchdog has rejected all reformists who registered to run in next month's presidential elections, approving only six out of the 1,010 hopefuls, state-run television reported Sunday.

The announcement prompted a crisis meeting by reformers, who immediately threatened to boycott the election.

'We are warning the Guardian Council that we will not participate in the election if it doesn't reverse its decision,' Rajabali Mazrouei, a top member of the reformist Islamic Iran Participation Front, told The Associated Press.

'Barring reform candidates means there will be no free or fair election,' he said."
