Two Iranian women in traditional Muslim dress peer through a gate of the U.S. Embassy compound in Tehran, Nov. 7, 1979, the fourth day of occupation by Iranian militants demanding concessions from the United States and the former Shah of Iran. Banners and a poster of fundamentalist leader Ayatollah Khomeini hang on the embassy. Embassy staffers were eventually held hostage 444 days. (AP Photo)
