On Sunday, December 30th, students from Tehran's Azad University of Science and Research protested for the second consecutive day in protest of the loss of their 10 classmates during a bus accident. In the course of this move, the university president fled by his car from the university instead of answering the students. On Saturday, thousands of students also rallied for the same cause.
