New Violent Clashes In Iran
Some protesters are starting to fight back against security forces in Iran.
This video apparently shows protesters beating a police officer or member of the hated militia - while other protesters try to come to his assistance.
It also shows trash being burned in the street. One view captures an image of a motor scooter in flames. The militia use scooters to ride after protesters and sometimes beat them.
The Times of London is reporting that four protesters may have been killed by police or security militia.
I was also provided extremely graphic video of people - presumably protesters - hanged in the street - a not uncommon occurrence in Iran, but we don't know when and where that video was taken. However, other protesters rushed their bodies in anger and anguish and it appeared that they were preparing to cut them down.
