Several demonstrators have been injured and tens of other arrested, in the last 2 days, following consecutive protest actions which turned into riots in the Tehran southern suburb of Rey and in the religious city of Ghom.
Protesters attacked public buildings and security patrols as the regime forces attacked brutaly the demonstrators in both actions. Slogans against the Islamic regime and its leaders were shouted while calling for free elections.
The security forces were able to smash the riots with the help of the Pasdaran Special Units sent to these two areas.
While in Rey, demonstrators intended to protest against the local officials corruption, Ghomis used a gathering of religious origin in order to show their rejection of the regime. http://www.daneshjoo.org/generalnews/article/publish/article_3464.shtml
