Police clashed with supporters of Iran's opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi in Tehran on Nov. 4 when a rally marking the 30th anniversary of the storming of the U.S. embassy turned violent, witnesses said. A reformist website, Mowjcamp, said police opened fire on protesters at Haft-e Tir square, but there was no independent confirmation. "Some people were injured," Mowjcamp reported. Thousands of Iranian security forces had assembled on the streets of Tehran to prevent any opposition gathering. "Police clashed with hundreds of protesters. They were chanting 'Death to dictators'. Police used batons to disperse them," a witness said. Another witness said police fired teargas at the crowd and arrested at least five protesters. (Reuters)
