-- Shiraz: students at the University of Shiraz have taken all of the Ahmadinejad campaign posters and burned them at the dormitory grounds. The students are now clashing with the police.

--Zahedan: students are clashing with police this evening.

--Karaj -- protesters are clashing with police this evening. In each location the police have reacted in a heavy-handed manner.
