WILLIAMSBURG - People representing the Iranian resistance rallied outside the United Nations on Monday.

They said they hope to get their message across to President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. They said they want the four Americans being held in Iran to be released and the killing, including public executions, in Iran to stop.

The group said it doesn't understand how the United States could make a deal with a country that's doing these things.

Hundreds of people from across the city and parts of Long Island took part in the rally.
