Former Iranian presidential candidate Karroubi has been met with slogans both in favor of and against himself while visiting Tehran's Press Fair. The opponents shouted "Liar, get lost" and "Death to Monafeq (hypocrite)" while the proponents chanted "Long live Karroubi".
The fair turned into a scene of clashes and some booths were damaged after the politician was attacked by a shoe. One of his body guards tried to make way for Karroubi to get out of the scene by shooting into the air.
After Karroubi left the fair, some of his proponents chanted "Death to dictator" near the booth of the pro-government daily of Kayhan which resulted in both physical and verbal clashes.
Tehran's Press Fair is annually held with the presence of local media.
