Clashes at Iranian protester's funeral in Tehran

Fresh clashes have erupted in Tehran during the funeral of a student killed in anti-government protests on Monday, Iranian state television says.

Rival groups of pro and anti-government protesters both claim the dead man as one of their supporters.

Sanea Jaleh, 26, was among two people killed during Monday's protests, when thousands of opposition members rallied for the first time in more than a year.

The protests come amid a wave of unrest in the Middle East and North Africa.

The BBC's Jon Leyne reports from Cairo.
