Iranian bloggers upload clash video

(00:52) Rough Cut Reuters

Jun 17 - Iranians have been using the Internet to distribute amateur video of post-election unrest.

This amateur video posted on Wednesday (June 17) purports to show members of the Basij militia firing at a crowd of demonstrators from the roof of their building on Monday (June 15).

Iranian state media says seven people were killed during the vast opposition protest in central Tehran.

On Wednesday it appeared that supporters of Iran's defeated presidential candidate Mirhossein Mousavi were aiming to keep up the pressure with new protests. They dispute a poll in which hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was officially declared to have won a resounding victory.

# PLEASE NOTE: Reuters coverage is now subject to an Iranian ban on foreign media leaving the office to report, film or take pictures in Tehran.
