Mobile phone video of opposition rally


Video footage of a rally in Tehran by supporters of Iran's defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has been sent to BBC Persian TV.

The new protests on Tuesday follow a huge opposition demonstration on Monday. Hospital officials say eight people died in violence which erupted at the end of that rally.

Tough new restrictions on the foreign media mean the BBC is unable to confirm the scale of the latest opposition protest.
