Reuters:Gunfire Heard as Vigilantes Attack Iran Protesters
"TEHRAN (Reuters) - Automatic gunfire was heard in the Iranian capital early Saturday as hundreds of Iranian pro-clergy militiamen, some armed with Kalashnikov rifles, attacked groups of people protesting against clerical rule.
In the most serious violence since pro-democracy demonstrations started four days ago, witnesses also reported seeing riot police and hard-line vigilantes pulling young women out of cars and beating them with sticks.
Reuters journalist Jon Hemming said more than 100 of the Islamic militiamen, who wear no uniforms, swooped on a group of a few dozen youngsters protesting around a bonfire in a side street not far from the Tehran University dormitory which has been the focal point of demonstrations...."I heard automatic gunfire but I couldn't see where it was coming from or what it was aimed at."..."

I don't know if hearing gunfire is true or not, but if it's true & they have really started shooting, it means that this process of revolution is coming to an end. You know when a government start shooting to people & killing them there is no hope for them to survive anymore. Let's just wish luck for that young & brave fighters & hope to see them in the free Iran that has its freedom because of their braveness & sacrifice...
