Abbas Sheibani passed away

After the 1953 persian coup d’état, Pahlavi had aligned with the United States and the Western Bloc to rule more firmly as an authoritarian monarch. He relied heavily on support from the United States to hold on to power which he held for a further 26 years. This led[vague] to the 1963 White Revolution and the arrest and exile of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1964.
