Reza Shoja, The Media Line's correspondent in Tehran, reported widespread demonstrations throughout the city. "Parents were throwing bricks with their children," Shoja said. "Lots of government banks and buildings were torched and another night of violence is expected."
"After dark, Basiji mobs toured the city with riot police and were used to break up demonstrators," Shoja added, referring to a volunteer paramilitary force serving the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
Car horn protests could be heard throughout the city, as could chants of "Bye bye dictator", "Ahmadi Nejad is the biggest liar in Iran," and "The president is committing a crime and the supreme leader is supporting him".
