Unrest continues on the streets of Iran


In Iran, a ceremony to mark the death of a student during an opposition rally has turned violent.

The 26-year old’s funeral procession had set off from Tehran University.

Iran’s state broadcaster says there was fighting between pro- and anti-government activists. Sanee Zaleh was shot dead on Monday during the first opposition rally for more than a year.

Both sides have blamed each other for his death.

Iran’s leading opposition figures, Mir Hossein Moussavi and Mehdi Karoubi, have urged the government to listen to the protesters’ demands.

The Iranian government put them under house arrest before Monday’s protest.

There have been calls for both to be tried and face the death penalty.
