‘Tehran is calm,’ only 200 demonstrating — semi-official media

Around 200 protesters march through downtown Tehran on Sunday, according to the conservative-linked semi-official Fars news agency, as authorities brace for a possible fourth night of unrest.

Several hundred more are shown gathering in the western city of Kermanshah, according to footage shared online by a group linked to the Revolutionary Guards.

“Contrary to rumors from hostile media, most parts of Tehran are calm. Around 200 people are occasionally chanting here and there,” Fars says.

It says shops had closed early “for fear of damage to their shops by rioters.
