A member of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard stands under a national flag on the wreckage of a captured US air force CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter during a ceremony in Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Sqare on April 25, 2010 to mark the 30th anniversary of the failed US mission to release American embassy staff taken hostage in the wake of the Islamic revolution of 1979. The United States must understand that it cannot bully Iran and should respect the rights of the Islamic republic, parliament speaker Ali Larijani said on the occasion. Fifty-three employees of the then US embassy in Tehran were held hostage for 444 days by Islamist Iranian students soon after the Islamic revolution that toppled the US-backed shah and in April 1980, then US President Jimmy Carter sent a rescue mission to free the hostages but the military effort ended in failure, with eight American servicemen killed.
