TEHRAN - Hundreds of protesters - mainly students - staged demonstrations in Tehran Tuesday against the European Union's anti- Iran resolution at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The students, mainly members of Islamic associations in the universities, gathered in front of the embassies of the E.U. trio involved in nuclear talks with Iran, shouting "death to the regimes of England, France and Germany".

The demonstrators condemned the E.U. states for "depriving" Iran of the pursuit of peaceful nuclear technology.

In front of the British embassy, the students also burnt the flags of the United States and Israel, the two arch-foes of the Islamic Republic.

Dozens of police and anti-riot forces were protecting the three embassies, with no immediate reports of major clashes.
