The demonstrations broke out after the Iranian military on Saturday said it unintentionally shot down a Ukrainian plane last week, killing all 176 people on board, after denying for days that it was responsible.
Several people have been wounded as the state security forces fired ammunition and tear gas to scatter demonstrators in Tehran and other cities.
Tehran’s police chief in a statement on Monday denied that shots were fired during the protests and that officers were under orders to show restraint. “At protests, police absolutely did not shoot because the capital’s police officers have been given orders to show restraint,” Hossein Rahimi said.
Meanwhile, reports of riot police and security forces shooting rubber bullets at protesters came from Azadi Avenue in Tehran.
A video shows bloodstains along the pavement and a woman being carried away as those around her cry out that she has been shot in the leg.
