Sully just posted this link to BBC's Farsi site, and he's right -- it's incredible footage.

The thing that struck me more than simply the sight of the small group of militia turning and running, was the scale of their response. Many of them were doing nothing more than throwing back the rocks that were being hurled at them. Not even tear gas was being used.

You can hear gunfire but I didn't see any of the protesters drop, and given the reports of blanks being used it's possible no one was in any severe danger at all.
