Iran says Sufi protesters clash with police leaving five dead
Iranian officials say at least five members of the country’s security forces were killed and more than 300 people arrested during clashes between Sufi protesters and police in the capital, Tehran.
Broadcast video appeared to show the moment a bus ploughed into a group of police officers, killing three of them.
Members of Iran's Gonabadi Sufi order, known as dervishes, were protesting the arrest of members of the sect.
Sufism is a mystical strain of Islam characterized by an inward search for God and the rejection of materialism.
There are no official statistics on the size of the Sufi population in Iran, which is subject to continued scrutiny and harassment because the Iranian government views them as heretics.

Japan Says China Illegally Transferred Cargo to North Korea
Japan says its military has witnessed a cargo transfer between China and North Korea on the high seas that it suspects violates United Nations economic sanctions on Pyongyang.
The foreign ministry said Tuesday a maritime surveillance plane and an escort ship spotted a North Korean-flagged tanker, identified as the Yu Jong 2, floating alongside a small ship last Friday about 250 kilometers off the Chinese city of Shanghai in the East China Sea.
The nationality of the other ship is unknown, but the ministry said the words "Min Ning De You 078" were written in Chinese on the ship's bow.
The ministry says it has reported the suspected transfer to the U.N. Security Council. This is the third such incident reported by Tokyo this year.
Pyongyang is subject to a series of U.N. Security Council sanctions over the regime's continued testing of its nuclear and ballistic missile weapons, including one prohibiting all member states from facilitating or engaging in ship-to-ship transfers of goods to or from North Korean-flagged vessels.
