TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - A reformist Web site in Iran says clashes
have erupted between security forces and opposition supporters in
central Tehran.

The Rah-e-Sabz site says forces including the Revolutionary
Guard and paramilitary Basij forces confronted demonstrators on
Saturday and broke the windows of cars that were honking horns in
protest.

Iran is marking the first 10 days of the Islamic month of
Moharram, a time of mourning rituals for a revered Shiite saint.

The period culminates Sunday with Ashoura - a day that coincides
with the seventh day since the death of Iran's most senior
dissident cleric, Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri.

More memorials and possible protests are expected.
