Protests in Tehran after Iran admitted shooting down plane
Videos and comments on social media show angry Iranians calling on leadership to resign over plane crash incident.

A group of Iranian protesters has demanded Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei step down after Tehran said its military mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian plane, killing all 176 people on board.

"Commander-in-chief [Khamenei] resign, resign," videos posted on Twitter showed hundreds of people chanting in front of Tehran's Amir Kabir University on Saturday.

'Clerics get lost!': Iran protests rage on over plane disaster

DUBAI (Reuters) - Protesters denouncing Iran’s clerical rulers took to the streets and riot police deployed to face them on Monday, in a third day of demonstrations after authorities acknowledged shooting down a passenger plane by accident.

Demonstrations, some apparently met by a violent crackdown, are the latest twist in one of the most serious escalations between the United States and Iran since the 1979 Iranian revolution swept the U.S.-backed shah from power.

Video from inside Iran showed students on Monday chanting slogans including “Clerics get lost!” outside universities in the city of Isfahan and in Tehran, where riot police were filmed taking out positions on the streets.

Videos posted late on Sunday recorded the gunfire around protests in Tehran’s Azadi Square. Wounded were being carried and security personnel ran gripping rifles. Riot police hit protesters with batons as people shouted “Don’t beat them!”

Do tell though, what's Fox reporting?
I don't have any idea.

We don't have cable so we don't get that network, and I don't like the barrage of advertising and the tracking associated with their website.

But when I posted anything from that source, certain liberals immediately dismissed it as untrustworthy, even if supported by other material. So I just got into the habit of not using it and pointing out when an item doesn't fit the agenda and message coming from the DNC-approved major US media that it WASN'T from Fox.
