Pro-government rallies in Iran ahead of United Nations meeting

Large shows of public support for the government in Tehran have continued, while the anti-government protests seemed to have wanned.

Rallies in support of Iran's government have reached a third day.

One of the largest was in the capital, Tehran, where people chanted anti-US slogans, blaming Washington for the unrest.

The protest movement, which never reached the size or momentum of the 2009 demonstrations, appears to have fizzled out - sidelined by the rallies of government supporters.
