TEHRAN, Dec. 9 — Iranian students held a protest on Sunday at Tehran University to demand the release of fellow students who have been jailed in recent months.

The students chanted slogans against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and damaged the main gates of the university, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

A witness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution, said that the figure of 1,500 demonstrators, which was reported by student Web sites, appeared to be accurate.

Advar News, a Web site run by former students, reported Sunday that one advocate, Ali Nikoonesbati, who was arrested last month, had been released.
