Police in the Iranian capital, Tehran, have denied using live ammunition against protesters outraged by the shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner.
Iranian chief of police said officers had been given orders to show restraint.
It could be recalled that protests erupted on Saturday, after Iran admitted firing missiles by mistake at the Ukraine International Airlines jet that crashed near Tehran.
All 176 people on board Flight PS752, mostly Iranians and Canadians, were killed.
