The U.N. Security Council held talks Friday on the deadly protests in Iran with Russia and the United States at odds over whether the top U.N. body should discuss the demonstrations. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned Iranian authorities that the world is watching as it responds to anti-government protests. Khoshroo also said the United States had abused its power as a permanent member of the Security Council by calling for a meeting to discuss the protests.Earlier in the day, tens of thousands of government supporters rallied across Iran, swearing allegiance to the religious establishment and accusing the U.S. of meddling, state TV reported.Tehran's Friday prayer leader called on authorities to deal "firmly" with those responsible for igniting over a week of demonstrations, in which 22 people were killed and more than 1,000 people were arrested, according to Iranian officials.
