YAZD, Iran (Reuters) - Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami has yet to announce whether he wants to relaunch reforms by competing in a 2009 presidential race.

But months ahead of the June vote, he was back in the spotlight and displaying his enduring popularity on a visit to the province of his birth, Yazd.

People in the province's desert capital greeted him with flowers and chants of: "Long live next president. We love you." and school children in blue uniforms sang for him as tears came into his eyes.
