Iran government supporters stage demo


Iranian security forces have clashed with crowds of opposition supporters in the city of Isfahan, according to opposition website reports.

Activists said police used tear gas and batons to disperse people gathering to commemorate Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, who died at the weekend.

Meanwhile footage broadcast on the state-run TV station IRIB has been broadcast apparently showing a pro-government counter rally in the holy city of Qom.
