On fourth day of Iran protests, in the northeastern city of Mashhad, protesters chanted: “Khamenei, have some shame, and leave the country alone!”
In Tehran, according to wire reports, police used water cannon to try to disperse demonstrators gathering in Ferdowsi Square in the center of the capital, citing video footage posted on social media.
Video posted online also showed a clash between protesters and police in the city of Khoramdareh in Zanjan province in the country’s northwest. There were also reports of protests in Sanandaj and Kermanshah cities in western Iran.
A semi-official news agency in Iran reported that police arrested around 200 people during protests in Tehran on Saturday.

He also said that around 40 leaders were arrested.
