>> Carrying banners saying death to America, burning US flags, hundreds of thousands of Iranians turning out to protest on Friday against US President Donald Trump and in support of the clerical establishment. Reflecting reignited tensions between Tehran and Washington since Trump warned last week he had put the Islamic Republic on notice.
US flags were burned despite a Twitter campaign by Iranians opposed to the practice. Who instead wanted to thank Americans who opposed Trump's travel ban on seven mainly Muslim countries, including Iran. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had called on Iranians to turn up, and show that Iran was uncowed.
State television saying millions had shown up around the country and showing images of people stepping on Trump's picture in the streets. Anti-Israeli sentiment also strong at the rally. President Hassan Rouhani told the throng that what he called inexperienced figures should know that the language of threats never worked with Iran and that they should learn to respect it.
