Clashes in Tehran

Reports from Tehran indicate that security forces used teargas today to disperse anti-government protestors gathered in Haft-e Tir Square. The reports also indicate a large group of people have gathered at the burial site of Ali Mousavi, the opposition leader's nephew killed by security forces on Ashura, in Behesht Zahra cemetery.

In a related development, the government today denied reports appearing in opposition websites that a large mechanized military force is moving toward Tehran. Rumors had spread in the city that a de-facto martial law was being staged.
