Iran currency rebounds after protests

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's national currency is rebounding from record lows, days after protests flared in the country's largest display of anger at economic conditions since Western sanctions were tightened this summer.

The semi-official ISNA news agency said the Iranian rial rose to 29,000 against the U.S. dollar on Saturday at the unofficial street trading rate, which is widely followed by Iranians.

The rial hit an all-time low of 35,500 to the dollar Tuesday. It was 24,000 rials earlier in the week, and close to 10,000 rials as recently as early 2011.

The rial's decline has been blamed on a combination of government mismanagement and the bite from sanctions imposed over Iran's nuclear program. The West says Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Tehran denies this and says the program is for peaceful purposes.
