Bing & Yahoo Can't Tell Time in Tehran, Iran

Did you know that both Yahoo and Bing cannot tell the time in Tehran, Iran? A Bing Community thread points out the issue with Bing. Let me share with you searches for [time tehran] from Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask and Wolfram - you will notice that both Bing and Yahoo are off.

Bing shows 3:55pm:

Time in Tehran Bing

Yahoo also shows 3:55pm:

Time in Tehran Yahoo

Google, Ask & Wolfram Alpha all show the correct time, as 4:55pm:

Time in Tehran Google

Time in Tehran Ask

Time in Tehran Wolfram

I am not sure why there is a difference between these search engines. Some cite that the difference comes from Iran Standard Time versus Iran Daylight Time, but Iran has one time right now.
