Iranian police detained more than 100 people for "disturbing public order" during a rally this week to mark the anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. embassy, the official IRNA news agency reported Saturday.

Security forces clashed with supporters of Iran's opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi in Tehran Wednesday when an annual state-organized rally marking the 30th anniversary of the storming of the U.S. embassy turned violent.

"Police arrested 109 people who created disorder and disturbed public order and security on the sideline of the rally Wednesday," said Azizollah Rajabzadeh, head of Tehran police, IRNA reported.
