Police fired tear gas on a crowd of about 200 stone-throwing people as they protested in Tehran over President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's disputed election win, an AFP reporter said.

Shouting "Death to the dictator!" angry supporters of defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi lobbed stones at policemen who fired back with tear gas to break up the demonstration.
