Russian Novosti News is reporting about a violent protest against Iranian President Ahmadinejad today in Tehran:

MOSCOW, December 11 (RIA Novosti) – Students staged a protest during President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at a Tehran university Monday, French media reported, citing Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

The demonstration is the third student protest in a week, the first sizeable student unrest in the Islamic Republic under the hard-line leader, who came to power in 2005 and began reversing earlier reforms.

A group of students began chanting anti-presidential slogans and smashed Iranian state television cameras installed to cover the event at Amir Kabir University. Other students, however, shouted out support for Ahmadinejad, Fars said.
