Iranian MPs have called for two leading opposition figures to be executed following mass protests yesterday.

Conservative members of Iran’s parliament said Mirhoussein Mousavi and Karroubi should be executed, accusing them of “creating public disorder.”

Iran’s opposition took to the streets yesterday to call for democratic reforms in the Islamic Republic.

The protesters clashed with security forces, leaving two people dead and several dozen injured.

One of the dead has been named as 26-year-old arts student, Sanee Jaleh.

The second victim has been named as Mohammad Mokhtari.
