Iranian pro-government rally on Wednesday called for serious and capital punishment of the opposition leaders who in a fresh move challenged the authority of the Iranian government.

The students and the people who gathered in Tehran Fine Arts University to mourn Iran's Monday protest victim Sane' Zhaleh called for the trial and execution of the opposition leaders, Mir- Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi.

In the meantime, clashes took place on Wednesday between students supporting the government and supporters of Iran's opposition in Tehran University at the funeral ceremony.

Supporters of the government forced them out of the scene by " chanting the slogan of death to Monafegh (hypocrite)," referring to the dissident Paris-based People's Mujahedeen of Iran (PMOI), the state IRIB TV website reported.

Sane' Zhaleh was shot dead during the Monday rally and the government blamed for anti-government protesters for the killing. The claim was denounced by the oppositions.
