Student Day in Iran. The day marks the anniversary of the murder of three Tehran University students on Azar 16 or December 7, 1953 by the security police of the former Pahlavi regime. The police opened fire on the students protesting the resumption of Iran's relations with Britain and a visit by then US vice President Richard Nixon to Iran, following a coup staged by the CIA and the MI6, which toppled the government of then prime minister Mohammad Mosadeq.
