Iran’s riot police, Revolutionary Guard, Basij militiamen clash with students


Thousands of Iranian riot police as well as forces of the elite Revolutionary Guard and their allied Basij militiamen

clashed with thousands of protesters shouting “death to the dictator” outside Tehran University on Monday, beating them with batons and firing tear gas on a day of nationwide student demonstrations, witnesses said.

The rallies were the largest in months, bringing tens of thousands out on more than a dozen campuses around the country and in several major squares in Tehran as university students – a bedrock of support for the pro-reform movement – energized the opposition. Source: NY Post
