'Fire' At HQ Of Iran President's Supporters Breaking News
4:01pm UK, Saturday June 20, 2009 Supporters of defeated election candidate Mirhossein Mousavi have reportedly lit a fire at the headquarters of the Iranian president's backers in Tehran.
Police have fired shots in the air to prevent clashes between those who favour pro-reformer Mr Mousavi and those who support hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, witnesses say.
Mr Ahmadinejad was the named the winner in the June 12 vote, but opposition candidates claimed there had been vote rigging and this led to major protests.
In the latest rally, officers have apparently been using tear gas and water cannon on opposition protesters.
Reports said thousands of people have defied Government warnings that any protests would be suppressed.
The head of the police warned Mr Mousavi of "firm action" against any "illegal" demonstration.
Eyewitnesses say some 3,000 protesters chanted "Death to the dictator!" and "Death to dictatorship!" near Revolution Square in the city centre.
