AP: Iran protester killed

An election protester in Iran has been killed, the Associated Press is reporting.

The report confirms some tweets earlier on Monday that reported violence at the Azadi Square demonstration. came out of the protests earlier in the day.

From the AP:
A group of demonstrators with fuel canisters set a small fire at a compound of a volunteer militia linked to Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard as the crowd dispersed from the square. As some tried to storm the building, people on the roof could be seen firing directly at the demonstrators at the northern edge of the square, away from the heart of the rally.

An Associated Press photographer saw one person fatally shot and at least two others who appeared to be seriously wounded.

That same twitterer, persiankiwi, also posted links to these images from the protest that were taken by twitpic user "rodrigomx."
