1978: Khomeini returns to Iran triumphant

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini began rebuilding his support while in exile, after being imprisoned and subsequently expelled from Iran in 1964. By 1978, anti-shah demonstrations were taking place as disillusioned Iranians joined the student movement in increasing numbers. The protesting led to the eventual mutiny of the army the following year, ousting the shah and ushering in the return of Khomeini. In this photo, the religious leader is pictured in prayer.
