Iran unrest: Deaths reported in fresh protests

Thirteen people are believed to have been killed in fresh anti-government demonstrations in Iran.

Initially, state TV said that 10 people had been killed overnight on Sunday, but by Monday evening that figure had been raised to 13 by a regional governor.

Police also say one of their officers has been shot dead.

Protesters took to the streets again following a televised address by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
