Police clash with protesters at Iran university

Security forces and pro-government militiamen clashed with protesters shouting "death to the dictator" outside Tehran University yesterday, beating men and women with batons and firing tear gas, on a day of nationwide student demonstrations, witnesses said.
Thousands of protesters demonstrated in the streets outside the campus in support of students inside. As they chanted "death to the dictator," riot police and Basij militiamen charged the crowds, the witnesses said.
The plainclothes Basijis beat protesters on the heads and shoulders as the crowd scattered, then regrouped on nearby street corners. Nearby, protesters and Basijis pelted each other with stones, the witnesses said, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.
