NYC speaks out on Iran’s protests

Barack Obama has urged Iran to end the violence against protesters. The Iranian government in turn says it faces not demonstrations, but riots.

Thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets as a result of the recent presidential elections. Several people have already been killed in clashes with the police, and many more have been detained.

Web-journalist and RT's 'The Resident', Lori Harfenist, takes to the streets of New York to gauge people's reaction on deadly protests in Iran and to find out where the line is drawn between protests and riots.
