Demonstrators clash with police in Tehran

Demonstrators who were protesting the dramatic loss of value of the Iranian currency clashed with police who fired tear gas to disperse the protesters. Hundreds of police in anti-riot gear stormed the capital's currency exchange district of Ferdowsi, arresting illegal money changers and ordering licensed bureaus and other shops closed. Travellers should exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice. Several countries advise their citizens to reconsider travelling to Iran at this time.
