Later Monday, state TV said six people were killed in the western town of Tuyserkan, 295 kilometers (185 miles) southwest of Tehran. Many in Izeh, some 455 kilometers (280 miles) southwest of Tehran, have hunting rifles in their homes.

The violence continued for a fourth day on Sunday despite President Hassan Rouhani's appeal for calm.

Mr Rouhani acknowledged grievances over Iran's economic situation, a lack of transparency and corruption but defended his record.

Unconfirmed videos and photos posted on the social media showed the police in Tehran, Mashhad, Khoramdareh and other places trying to disperse the protesters from the sites of protests.

Khojastehpour claimed that "no shots were fired by the police and security forces" and "foreign agents" and "enemies of the revolutions" were responsible for these deaths.

"The government will show no tolerance for those who damage public properties, violate public order and create unrest in the society", he said in remarks on state TV.
