Iranian Students Protest "Islam of the Taliban"
Demonstrations rock Tehran universities
TEHRAN (AFP) - Two of the Iranian capital's main universities were rocked by overnight protests and clashes between students and police, press reports said.
Forty police were lightly injured by stone throwing in front of the Tehran University dormitories, Tehran's police chief, General Morteza Talaie, told the official news agency IRNA.
Meanwhile, students at the Amir Kabir University, one of the country's most prestigious technical colleges, demonstrated late Tuesday against "the intervention of Basij in elections" for members of the Islamic Student Association -- one of the few remaining pro-reform groups still operating on campus.
"We don't want the Islam of the Taliban," and "Death to reactionaries and dictatorship," shouted protestors according to ISNA.
