Protests Against Iranian Regime Sweep Tehran; Several Killed and 300 Arrested - Video 12/27/09


Here is raw video of protests that rocked Iran's capital city of Tehran today, as thousands of people protested the despotic regime ruling the country. Iranian forces reportedly killed several protesters, and more than 300 are known to have been arrested:

Several people were killed and more than 300 were arrested in anti-government protests in Tehran, Iran, on Sunday, Iran's Deputy Police Chief Ahmad Reza Radan said on state television station IRINN.

The toll was the result of clashes that broke out between demonstrators and security forces as large crowds gathered for Ashura, a major religious observance.

Four people were reported killed in the fighting, according to Iranian state-run Press TV. A French government statement put the number of fatalities at eight. With tight restrictions on international media, CNN could not independently verify the casualties.

The reformist Web site Parlemannews reported that one of the victims Sunday was Saeed Ali Mousavi, nephew of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi. Press TV reported that the younger Mousavi was not a victim of Sunday's clashes.

Tehran Police Chief Azizollah Rajabzadeh denied any protesters were killed by security forces. . . . MORE
