IRAN: Protesters fill streets of Tehran by the thousands

February 14, 2011 |  7:35 am


Video clips uploaded to the Internet are said to show crowds of protesters out in streets of the Iranian capital on the day the political opposition had called for a rally. The video clip above purportedly depicts crowds of students at a protest rally at Tehran's Sharif University on Monday. Sources told Babylon & Beyond that the gathering at Sharif University started in the early afternoon and that protesters chanted anti-government slogans and Allah o Akbar--God is Great-- before members of the Basij militia arrived at the scene to disperse the crowds.

 Below, rally-goers are purportedly seen marching in the streets of Tehran while chanting anti-government slogans on Monday.
