Mr. Boucher rejected the Islamic regime&apos;s charge that the US has helped incite the week-long, nationwide protests against Iran&apos;s clerical leadership. He said, “The demonstrations are not about the US. These are Iranians protesting Iranian policy.” He added that by offering support and encouragement the US “has made it clear which side we stand on.” (Bijan Farhoodi, Washington) <b>Ant-Regime Protests Spread in Tehran and Major Cities</b> • A week after residents of the neighborhoods surrounding the Tehran University campus jointed the students in all-night demonstrations against the regime, the protests spread to other neighborhoods of Tehran, as well as other major cities, where police and plainclothes security forces clashed violently with demonstrators.

IAEA spokesman <b>Melissa Fleming</b> tells <b>Radio Farda</b> that the EU foreign ministers&apos; “putting a big political push” for Iran to sign the additional protocol would be useful.
