According to news I received from my contacts in Tehran the Basij and the police attacked the student in Tehran University last night (Sunday), and the attack on students lasted until 3 am in the morning. The students were shouting slogans such as “death to dictator” and “death to Khamenei.” The police closed the streets to prevent students from leaving University grounds and from other people coming in. They attacked the students with tear gas, and students fought back by throwing stones.

Furthermore between 200-300 police and Basij came into the dormitories and attacked and beat the students. They Basij pushed some students off the balconies and some students jumped themselves out of fear for their lives. According to news from my contacts, close to 80 students in Tehran University have been arrested. Many of the students are suffering from broken bones as a result of beatings from Police and the Basij.
