Iranians protest in solidarity with uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia

Iranians are protesting in solidarity with Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings, amateur video shows.

The demonstrations on the streets of Tehran were posted on YouTube. Iran’s Press TV reported that one person was killed and several were injured in the protest.

While Iran officially supported the protests in Egypt and Tunisia, the government is trying to quell demonstrations at home.

The country was marred by violence following the 2009 presidential election that saw incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad returned to power.

Iran also warned against U.S. meddling in the region after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she supported the opposition protesters.
