The crackdown on opposition protesters by the Iranian government continued on Tuesday.
Video from the internet show police officers using batons on demonstrators. Riot police and Basij militia have prevented mass protests on Tehran's main squares since Sunday. Iranian authorities say they will teach an exemplary lesson to rioters in the worst unrest the country has seen since the birth of the Islamic Republic.
Opposition protesters allege the June 12th presidential election was rigged by the government.
