Khatami pulls out of Iranian race
It remains unclear who Mr Khatami will support in June's election
Former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami has officially announced his withdrawal from the country's presidential election in June.
In a statement, he said he would pull out in order not to split the reformist vote. Two other pro-reform candidates are also in the running.
Mr Khatami was president of Iran from 1997-2005 and was succeeded by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a hard-line conservative.
Mr Ahmadinejad is widely expected to stand for re-election.
I hope that that my friends and all Iranians choose a president that makes life easier for them..... :-(
