TEHRAN: Clashes erupted between regime backers and “apparent” supporters of Iran's opposition at a funeral in Tehran Wednesday of a person killed in anti-government protests, state television reported.

“Students and people participating in the funeral of martyr Sane'e Zhale in Tehran Fine Arts University are clashing with a few apparently from the sedition movement,” the television website said.

It said that regime backers by “chanting slogans of Death to Monafeghin forced them (opposition supporters) out of the scene.” – AFP
