Opposition leaders Mousavi and Karroubi praised on Wednesday, on their websites, their supporters as well as the protesters to further defy the pro-government calls for their execution.

Sporadic clashes were reported to have taken place Monday in the capital of Tehran between security forces and opposition protesters. The demonstration, called by the opposition leaders initially to show support for the demonstration in Egypt and Tunisia, later turned into protests against the Iranian government.

Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said Tuesday that a number of security forces were wounded by gunshots and "two persons were martyred" in Monday's incidents.
