Iran – Protesters and Police Clash in Tehran

Stop Fundamentalism – Iranian dissident media reports from Tehran indicate new occurrences of demonstrations and clashes between Iranian protesters and the police.  Demonstrators chanted “death to dictator” and set fire on trash bins and clashed with security forces.

In Narmak area about 7:30 pm, police had to fire teargas into the crowd gathered there to demonstrate.

Reports show that clashes continued in some streets such as Azadi Street until late hours of the day.  In Jamalzade, Iranian police attacked demonstrators arresting some young protesters.
