Iran police detain many Tehran protesters: witness

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian riot police detained dozens of pro-reform protesters in central Tehran on Tuesday, a witness said.

The witness said the protesters were chanting slogans against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the government, including: “Ahmadinejad -- resign, resign” and “Death to the dictator.”

The witness added: “Riot police are taking dozens of protesters into their cars and they are taking them away.”
