More video of today's events in Tehran is emerging on the Internet as clashes between opposition supporters and security forces appear to have turned increasingly violent. Unconfirmed reports from opposition websites citing eyewitness accounts claim four people have been killed in the protests. Several injuries also have been reported.
"Three of our compatriots were martyred and two were injured in clashes. The reporter who was on the scene said these three were directly shot at by military forces,” said a report carried by the Iranian opposition website Rahesabz.net.Pictures uploaded by users on Twitter show an unidentified man lying in the street in a pool of blood.
But despite the attempted crackdown on demonstrators by security forces, they appear to remain defiant. In the video below, large groups of protesters are seen chanting, "Ya Hossein, Mir Hossein," in reference to Iran's reformist leader as motorbikes believed to belong to the pro-government Basiji militia are seen burning in the street.
