Renewed clashes reported in Iran

Iranian security forces and opposition activists have clashed in Tehran, reformist websites and witnesses say.

Some reports say shots have been fired in the air to disperse demonstrators in the centre of the capital.

Clashes were also reported in northern Tehran, where reformist ex-President Mohammad Khatami had been due to speak. (BBC)

The “class war” strategy of Gordon Brown was in disarray last night after cabinet ministers distanced themselves from it.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Jack Straw, the justice secretary, dissociated himself from the prime minister’s attack on David Cameron’s Eton education, suggesting it was unfair to criticise individuals for something over which they had no control. (Sunday Times)
