"The students and people attending the funeral ceremony of Shahid (martyr) Sane' Zhaleh in Tehran Fine Arts University clashed with a few who were apparently from the sedition movement, " the report said.

Supporters of the government forced them out of the scene by " chanting the slogan of death to Monafegh (hypocrite)," referring to the dissident Paris-based People's Mujahedeen of Iran (PMOI), said the report.
