Iran

A Muslim Iranian couple look at Christmas items of a shop in a Christian neighborhood in central Tehran, Iran, Thursday, Dec. 22, 2016. Iran's population of 80 million includes about 120,000 Christians, mostly Armenian ethnicity, and the constitution gives protected status to Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians. It reserves parliament seats for them and permits churches - Roman Catholic, Armenian Orthodox and others, as well as synagogues and Zoroastrian temples that are under sporadic watch by authorities. Religious celebrations are allowed, but no political messages or overtones are tolerated. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
