Anti-Ahmadinejad Students Call for 'Death to Dictator'

University of Tehran students have staged a demonstration against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and shouted "death to the dictator." Students in a counter demonstration proclaimed, "We support the president of the revolution."

The incident occurred before the Iranian president was scheduled to deliver a speech at the university. Iranian officials recently have broken up anti-government demonstrations and shut down a web site criticizing Ahmadinejad.
