Hundreds of thousands of Iranians turned out for a mass opposition rally in Tehran on Monday, an AFP correspondent said, with one policeman saying the figure could be as many as two million.

"Between 1.5 million to two million people have gathered," one policeman involved in the security operation for the protest said.

The rally was organised by defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, who claims Friday's vote that saw Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-elected was rigged.
