Police disperse protesters in Iran

Iranian police fired tear gas and clashed with anti-government protesters at a graveside memorial in Tehran for victims of post-election violence, reports say.

State TV broadcast footage of police wielding batons dispersing crowds from the grave of Neda Agha Soltan, whose death last month became a symbol of post-election unrest.
