The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards has declared the defeat of the “sedition” in the country, referring to a wave of anti-government protests.
Maj Gen Mohammad Ali Jafari made the announcement as tens of thousands of people attended pro-government rallies called to counter the unrest.
It began last Thursday in the city of Mashhad and has seen 21 people killed.
The protests were initially against price rises and corruption, but turned to wider anti-government sentiment.
They have been the largest since the disputed 2009 presidential election.
