Iranian opposition protests show defiance


Iranian opposition protesters have reportedly clashed with anti-riot police in the city of Isfahan, following the death of Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Ali Montazeri at the weekend.

Meanwhile footage sent to the BBC from Najafabad shows crowds chanting "Criminals, rapists, death to the leadership" and "We're not afraid, we're not afraid" as security men watch from the rooftops.

The BBC cannot verify the authenticity of this footage.
