Iranians from across the political spectrum hailed the historic phone conversation between President Barack Obama and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, reflecting wide support for an initiative that has the backing of both reformists and the country's conservative clerical leadership. Despite the broad-based praise, the hard-liners opposed to any improved contact with Washington made their objections clear at Rouhani's arrival in Tehran. Several dozen protesters chanted "Death to America" and tried to block Rouhani's motorcade.
