'Two killed' at Monday Iran rally

Two people were killed at a banned opposition rally in Iran, a member of parliament told the student news agency ISNA.

"At Monday's rally...two people were martyred and many were wounded; one person was shot dead," Kazem Jalali was quoted as saying by ISNA.

Thousands of Iranian opposition activists rallied on Monday in support of popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. A senior police official said one person was killed and several wounded by protesters.

An opposition website said at least 1,500 people were arrested while taking part in the banned protests.
