Iran's Mousavi calls new protest

Iran's main opposition leader is urging his supporters to gather outside parliament in Tehran later on Wednesday, in defiance of government orders for protesters to stay off the streets.

The call from Mir Hossein Mousavi comes as Iranian authorities have reportedly deployed more security to break-up any gatherings and quell further protests.

On Tuesday authorities warned they would set up special courts to deal with detained protesters and "teach them a lesson".

Mousavi's call for fresh protests in Tehran's main square at 1600 local time will be a key test of whether the government crackdown will keep protesters at home.
