    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.
