Iran protests 'have broader depth'


Violent clashes between authorities and opposition supporters in Iran are continuing. Websites are claiming that the stand-off broke out after security forces prevented people from attending a ceremony to commemorate the influential dissident figure, Grand Ayatollah Montazeri. And, in an interview with Channel 4 News, President Ahmedinejad has said that President Obama has "failed to meet expectations".

Ali Ansari, director of the Iranian Institute at the University of St Andrews, analyses the comments.
