Tens of supporters joined the students following the brutal attack, by the Islamist militiamen, and responded to their use of clubs and chains by pieces of stones resulting in the injuries of several plainclothes agents.

Students of several universities, such as, Tehran, Ahvaz, Hamedan, Zahedan, Tabriz and Mashad participated in the today's protest and they intend to resume their actions as early as tomorrow morning.

The Islamic regime's security forces have been deployed inside the universities, around the dorms and in the neighboring avenues in order to smash any future protest action.
