Text size Aa Aa

Anger over the outcome of Iran’s election shows no sign of abating, with further protests against what President Ahmadinejad’s opponents say was a rigged vote.

There have been more clashes between demonstrators and police in some parts of the city. Anti-riot officers used teargas and were reported to have fired shots in the air in a bid to disperse the crowds. The pro-reform opposition candidate Mirhossein Mousavi has launched a legal challenge to the result and called on his supporters to stay on the streets in peaceful protest.
