Away from Tehran’s central square streets have been filled with opposition supporters shouting slogans like “death to the dictator” and waving their emblematic green flags.

Opposition claims on various websites say its supporters have been attacked with gunfire and tear gas. The granddaughter of Ayatollah Khomeini and her husband have reportedly been detained along with the son of leading opposition figure Medhdi Karoubi. The opposition also says security forces attacked Karoubi’s car and former president Mohammed Khatami.
