Iranian lawmakers: Put opposition leaders on trial

This photo, taken by an individual not employed by the Associated Press and obtained by the AP outside Iran, shows Iranian protesters throwing stones at ant-riot police officers, during an anti-government protest Monday in Tehran. Eyewitnesses report that sporadic clashes have erupted in central Tehran's Enghelab or Revolution Square between security forces and opposition protesters. The demonstrators were chanting "death to the dictator," referring to the country's hardline president.
