Teheran University students protest crackdown on activists

Hundreds of Iranian students angry over a crackdown on activists protested Sunday at Teheran University, the second such demonstration in less than a week, witnesses and state radio said. One witness, Mehdi Arabshahi, said the campus protest lasted more than two hours as several students chanted slogans against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's hardline administration. "Students chanted against policies by Ahmadinejad's administration, which is imposing pressures on the universities and detaining activists," Arabshahi said. Another witness, Abbas Kazemi, said the protesters chanted anti-war slogans aimed at the United States and Israel.
