Tehran, May 01 – Thousands of Tehran residents Saturday afternoon chanted anti-government slogans as they marched towards the Labour Ministry on international Workers’ Day.

At least 4,000 people marched down Azadi Street in central Tehran toward the ministry, according to an Iran Focus correspondent at the scene.
