TEHRAN, IRAN: A young Iranian volunteer militiaman after a meeting at the Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery, just outside Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, July 26, 2006. More than 60 volunteer militiamen set off Wednesday to try to join the fight against Israeli forces in Lebanon. Organizers called it the first convoy of 'Islamic warriors' offering their help. Iran says it will not send regular forces to aid Hezbollah, but apparently will not attempt to stop volunteer guerrillas.
