Government Supporters Shown On Iran's Streets In Wake Of Protests

Tens of thousands of Iranians have purportedly rallied in support of the government in several cities following several days of antiregime protests and deadly clashes between demonstrators and security forces that have left at least 22 dead. Iran's state-run television broadcast live footage of the pro-government rallies on January 3, which appears to show demonstrators with Iranians flags, signs supporting the clerically overseen government and chanting "Death to America" a day after the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused Iran’s "enemies" and the United States in particular of fomenting the unrest.
