DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Online videos show police firing tear gas and fighting protesters with batons in a central Iranian city that has seen days of demonstrations demanding government action over a drought. The social media videos and others from activists show police and protesters clashing in the dry bed of the Zayandehrud River in Isfahan on Friday. The videos correspond to reporting by The Associated Press and satellite images of the area, as well as some semiofficial Iranian news agency accounts of the unrest. There was similar unrest in nearby streets in Isfahan, which is 340 kilometers, or 210 miles, south of the capital Tehran.
