University, during a demonstration, in Tehran, Iran Tuesday July 13, 1999.
Tear gas was fired to disperse pro-democracy demonstrators who gathered
in defiance of a government ban on demonstrations. In a flashback to the
revolution that installed Iran's Islamic government 20 years ago, baton-wielding
police fired tear gas to disperse 10,000 protesters on the streets of Tehran
today, the sixth day of protests against hard-liners who have thwarted
reform efforts. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)
