Iran security forces clash with protesters in Isfahan

ImageTEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian security forces clashed with supporters of the opposition in the central city of Isfahan and "many" demonstrators were injured, the pro-reform Jaras website reported.

"Security forces clashed with pro-reform protesters … who gathered to commemorate Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri's demise … Police fired teargas to disperse people … many people were injured … some arrested," the website reported.

The reported incident took place two days after huge crowds turned out in the Shi'ite holy city of Qom for the funeral of Iran's leading dissident cleric Montazeri, and many chanted anti-government slogans, websites reported.

The reports from Isfahan could not be verified independently because foreign media were banned from reporting directly on protests.

Montazeri, who died on Saturday at the age of 87, was an architect of the 1979 revolution that overthrew the U.S.-backed shah and was once named to succeed Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini as supreme leader of the Islamic state. But Montazeri fell from grace after criticizing the mass execution of prisoners.
